The documentary follows efforts in Houston to create a supportive environment for youth recovering from addiction to alcohol and drugs. Those efforts include a system of treatment centers, sober high schools, alternative peer groups and collegiate recovery programs.
It is directed by Greg Williams, whose previous film, “The Anonymous People,” helped ignite the recovery movement, including the formation of several recovery community organizations in the Capital Region. “The Anonymous People” urges people with substance use disorders to shed the cloak of anonymity often associated with 12-step programs in order to shatter the stigma associated with addiction.
Matt Butler, who composed music for the film, will perform live following the showing.
