Join Students Advocating Safe Choices and Worcester-Based recovery community center Everyday Miracles for a screening of the documentary 'The Anonymous People' (2013). From IMDb: "Recovery is OUT - to change the addiction conversation from problems to SOLUTIONS. An independent feature documentary about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addictions."

Following the film, we will be holding an optional panel discussion regarding the film, its themes, and its relevancy in Worcester. How are addicts forced to remain silent? Why does the current U.S. system of recovery and rehabilitation fail? How has addiction become an anonymized taboo?

Everyday Miracles Peer Recovery Community Center is a recovery oriented sanctuary anchored in the heart of downtown Worcester. The center opened in October 2009 and welcomed its relocation to a store front at 25 Pleasant Street, Worcester in November 2009. The Recovery Center provides peer-to-peer recovery support using its volunteer/member force to deliver services. http://www.everydaymiraclesprsc.org/

 

This screening is FREE and open to the public.
