Feb 01, 2015 06:49AM
Empowering For Life, an addiction interventions and recovery support services company, in Leola, will host a viewing of The Anonymous People, a documentary film about the millions of Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addictions, at 11 a.m., February 21. Open to the public, the event includes a post-film discussion.
Addiction affects everyone and every community. The emotional, psychosocial and financial costs are steep. The Anonymous People focuses on hope, change and advocacy. It highlights what does and does not work and what steps can be taken to make a difference.
“After decades of using a traditional, cookie-cutter approach to treating addiction, it is clear that what we are doing is ineffective,” says Jack Pacewicz, a certified addictions counselor, certified recovery support specialist and founder of Empowering For Life. “The need for a comprehensive, individualized approach to treatment is evident.”
