Did you know that there are over 23 million people in recovery in the US alone? Organizations like "I Am Not Anonymous" are working to break the stigma of addiction, and share peoples' stories of recovery to help others who are suffering and feel they are alone.
From the "I Am Not Anonymous" website:
"For years, those suffering from addiction have done so in silence as a result of the negative stigma surrounding it. The truth is, people DO recover. Our mission is to bring the SOLUTION into the conversation in hopes of helping the millions of people who remain untreated and help the world understand that addiction is not a moral failing. It is a powerful disease and the stigma associated with it is just as deadly as the disease itself."
On this show we are so excited to welcome the Creators of "I Am Not Anonymous", Tom and Kate. Through the power of story and photography, Tom and Kate are at the forefront of the ever-increasing movement to break down the stigma of addiction. We will talk to them about their own journeys in recovery (Tom) and loving sommeone in recovery (Kate), as well as learn more about the project and the impact it is having on the stigma of addiction.
