Recovery community hosts film screening, potluck



ELLSWORTH — Healthy Acadia’s Building a Recovery Community initiative presents a free potluck supper, discussion and showing of the film, “Anonymous People” Monday, March 25 at 5:30 p.m. at Your Place Recovery Center at 8 Old Mill Road.

“Anonymous People” is an independent feature documentary directed by Greg D. Williams that shines a spotlight on the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other substance addictions. The film seeks to change the addiction conversation from problems to solutions.

“Building a Recovery Community helps bring together people who are interested in giving back to their communities and helping others on their recovery journey,” said Denise Black, who manages the Recovery Supports program at Healthy Acadia. “All are welcome to join us and learn how they can become involved. We meet on the fourth Monday of each month to explore recovery supports — what’s working, what’s needed, in our communities.”

Standing committees will meet from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. There will be a potluck supper at 5:30 p.m. and the movie will begin promptly at 5:45 p.m. This event is free and all are welcome. Contact Denise Black at 667-7171 or [email protected]
