Addiction recovery documentary and panel discussion at Hudson Town Hall

33

Hudson – The River’s Edge Arts Alliance, along with the Hudson Board of Health, is sponsoring a film and panel discussion about addiction and recovery as part of their “Season of Compassion” Friday, June 5, at 7 p.m.

“The Anonymous People” is a feature documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Deeply entrenched social stigmas have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. “The Anonymous People” is told through the faces and voices of citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, public figures and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This passionate new public recovery movement aims to transform public opinion, engage communities and elected officials, and shift problematic policy toward lasting solutions.

The 53-minute film will be followed with a panel discussion with local community members who are willing to share their stories to help others. Information about recovery and rehabilitation organizations will be available. This film is free to the public and refreshments will be served. Donations are gratefully accepted.
