(SOLDOTNA, AK) August 28, 2014 – In Recognition of National Recovery Month (September), Serenity House Treatment Center is sponsoring a local screening of “The Anonymous People.”
“The Anonymous People” is a feature documentary film about the 23.5 million Americans living in longterm recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. The moving story of 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. The film shines a light on the personal and societal value of recovery through the moving stories of people who are public about what their lives are like now that they are no longer using alcohol or other drugs.
When asked about National Recovery month and the local screening of The Anonymous People, Dr. Kristie Sellers Ph.D., Director of Behavioral Health Services at CPH replied “We believe recovery happens. It’s about changing the perception and language surrounding recovery. Labels are so stigmatizing and for someone in recovery those labels can cast long shadows.” Sellers went on to say that “we hope to change the perception of what recovery in our community is, what it looks like and how we talk about it.”
The documentary will be shown at the Orca Theatre on September 14th at 9:30am. Admission requires a donation of a non‐perishable food item that will help stock the shelves at the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank.
