The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will unveil the results of the latest (2012) National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) at a press conference on Wednesday, September 4, 2012. The annual survey is the largest of its kind and is the government’s primary vehicle for determining how many persons are using illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, as well as how many are misusing pharmaceuticals.
The release of SAMHSA’s 2012 NSDUH survey findings kicks off the 24th annual National Recovery Month observance, celebrating individuals throughout the country who have achieved long-term recovery from mental and substance use disorders and recognizing the contributions of the dedicated men and women providing treatment and recovery services. Recovery Month aims to educate the public that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, that treatment for substance use and mental health disorders is effective, and that people can and do recover.

According to the CDC, a dramatic increase in opioid prescriptions has led to “skyrocketing” rates of overdose deaths and addiction.
Drug overdoses are now killing more Americans than car crashes.
Immediate action from our federal agencies is needed to prevent new cases of opioid addiction, to prevent more overdose deaths and to ensure access to effective treatment for millions who have become addicted.

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 have 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, a 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.
