Dalton State to Screen ‘The Anonymous People’


From business executives to stay-at-home moms to college students, Americans recovering from addiction surround us throughout our everyday lives. On Tuesday, Feb. 23, Dalton State College will host a free screening of the 2013 documentary film, “The Anonymous People” about the daily walk of recovery. The screening will be held in the Eddie Miller Room in the Pope Student Center at 6 p.m.

“‘The Anonymous People’ is a feature documentary film about the more than 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs,” said Travis McKie-Voerste, a licensed professional counselor and coordinator of Dalton State’s Counselling and Career Services. “Following the screening, there will be a discussion about addiction, recovery, and the future of treatment and support. We hope people from the greater community, those in recovery, and their family, friends, and co-workers, will participate in this important discussion.”

The documentary film is sponsored by the Dalton State Counselling and Career Services Center and the Collegiate Recovery Community in order to raise awareness about people in recovery, reduce stigma, and provide support to current and future Roadrunners who are in recovery from addiction.
