The Anonymous People ~ Classroom Edition
You asked for it, and now it's here: our new 50-minute version of The Anonymous People, edited specifically for use in high school classrooms or any setting in which a shorter, language-appropriate version is preferable. This acclaimed documentary film about the 23.5 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and drug addiction has been in high demand since we released it over a year ago.
Educators, counselors and clinicians know that addiction reaches into all schools, regardless of age, race, gender or income level; here's the award-winning film that deals head-on with the real problems faced by addicts and their families, and offers hope for lasting change, despite deeply entrenched social stigma that's kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades.
Now is the time to educate students about the real facts of addiction and recovery before they become independent members of society. Shrugging off traditional cautionary stories that students have learned to distrust, The Anonymous People tackles addiction and recovery for what it is: a social and medical issue that's been misclassified as criminal for over half a century.
Students who watch The Anonymous People 50-minute edition will unequivocally learn:
- Addiction isn't a sign of weakness or lack of character, it can happen to anyone
- Shame caused by public stigma keeps most addicts from ever seeking recovery, or even admitting their problems
- Sometimes even the families of addicts can make mistakes that keep the sufferer from finding and holding onto recovery
- Addiction isn't hopeless, even long-time addicts with "ruined" lives have found help and achieved solid, long-term recovery
- We can change the laws and the societal ideas that keep this medical condition locked in the "dark ages"
The Anonymous People revolutionizes the way addiction and recovery are discussed, and provides powerful knowledge of the nature and treatment of substance abuse. Teach and inform with The Anonymous People - Classroom Edition and empower effective participants in a public dialog that grows more important with each passing year.
