It’s estimated that 22 million Americans are struggling with addiction to a drug or alcohol. Only 10 percent seek treatment.

After cost, one of the primary barriers is shame and fear as well as the belief that it’s not possible to recover from an addiction. But, more than 23 million Americans are living in recovery!

September is National Recovery Month, now in its 29th year.

Pine Rest’s Recovery Connections Group is working to make recovery more visible in our community in order to remove the shame and fear of addiction and to encourage people to seek treatment. They invite the public to a free screening of The Anonymous People.
