The Anonymous
PRLog - Jan. 10, 2014 - WASHINGTON -- Greg Williams The Anonymous People

THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE IS A FEATURE documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Deeply entrenched social stigma has kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum has been filled with sensational mass media depictions of people with addiction that perpetuate a lurid fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition. Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, grass roots social justice movement is emerging. Courageous addiction recovery advocates have come out of the shadows and are organizing to end discrimination and move toward recovery-based solutions. The moving story of The Anonymous People is told through the faces and voices of citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, public figures, and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This passionate new public recovery movement aims to transform public opinion, engage communities and elected officials, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting solutions.

Eleven years ago, Greg Williams was taught the accepted terminology for describing himself: "My name is Greg Williams, and I am a drug addict."

Williams doesn't like that anymore. He prefers "My name is Greg Williams, and I am a person in long-term recovery."

"It's an entirely different feeling when I tell someone that. I characterize the recovery from my illness from a place of pride, which I am, I'm proud of my recovery today," Williams, of Danbury, said. "My recovery is the best thing about me. Everything in my life in the last 11 years has been amazing. My recovery made that possible."

Greg Williams is a communications specialist, addiction policy expert and, above all, an activist for the transformation of the current response to addiction in America. Growing from his personal recovery experience from alcohol and other drugs at age 17, he co-founded Connecticut Turning To Youth and Families (http://www.ctyouthandfamilies.org/landing/), a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to creating positive changes in prevention, treatment and recovery services and policies for young people and their families. In 2013, he is set to release his first feature film, The Anonymous People, an independent documentary about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from addiction. This film aims to forever change the public face of addiction in America.

Mr. Williams holds a B.A. in communications and media production from Quinnipiac University. He also holds a M.A. from New York University specializing in addiction public policy, documentary film and health financing. His thesis research afforded Mr. Williams an opportunity to train at The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), working for the senior advisor on health finance and health reform, John O'Brien.
