Addiction recovery film, panel discussion planned at The Westmoreland

Renatta Signorini

A free public screening of a documentary about people living in recovery from an addiction will be held Thursday at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.

The film — “The Anonymous People” — will be followed by a panel discussion.

The event is being sponsored by the Westmoreland Drug Overdose Task Force’s Recovery Working Group and Recovery Friendly Workplace program. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. The two-hour presentation will begin at 6.

The panel will consist of two people who are in recovery and Westmoreland County Detective Tony Marcocci. The discussion will be moderated by Eric Kocian, a professor at Saint Vincent College.

“The Anonymous People,” released in 2013, is about the millions of Americans who are living in recovery from a drug or alcohol addiction. The film features legislators, celebrities and others who tell their stories about struggling with addiction in an effort to spread awareness and change perceptions about the disease, according to the film’s website.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
