Free screening of ‘The Anonymous People’ at CoRR

On Sept. 10, “The Anonymous People” documentary film will be shown at the CoRR Campus at 180 Sierra College Drive in Grass Valley. The screening will be a part of the free community Recovery and Wellness Series. Community Recovery Resources, the Coalition for a Drug Free Nevada County, CoRR alumni and the recovery community have teamed up to bring this free event back to Nevada County and raise awareness and compassion for the millions of people impacted by substance use and abuse. Doors will open at 5 and the film will begin at 6 p.m. with speakers and a discussion panel to follow.

“The Anonymous People” is a feature documentary film about the 23.5 million Americans living in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. Deeply entrenched social stigma and discrimination have kept many recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum created by this silence has been filled by sensational mass media depictions of people in active addiction that continue to perpetuate a lurid public fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition.

Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, courageous addiction recovery advocates are starting to come out of the shadows to tell their true stories. The story of The Anonymous People is told through the faces and voices of the leaders, volunteers, corporate executives and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This new public recovery movement aims to fuel a new conversation with hopes of transforming public opinion, and shifting problematic policy toward lasting recovery solutions.

The CoRR Campus Grass Valley is located at 180 Sierra College Drive in Grass Valley. For more information, call Melissa Kelley at 530-273-9541 ext. 226.
