the anonymous people

Hopkinton’s Director of Youth and Family Services, Denise Hildreth, is also the head of Hopkinton Organizing for Prevention (HOP):  A community-wide collaboration in preventing substance use and abuse. The group’s mission: To provide substance abuse prevention, resources, and education for the purpose of promoting well-being and resilience for all Hopkinton community members.  As part of the ongoing work of HOP, Denise will be hosting a film screening of The Anonymous People on Wednesday, January 20 from 7-9PM in the High School Auditorium.  This documentary film about the 23.5 million Americans living in long-term recovery aims to de-stigmatize the hard work of recovery and reinforce the sad reality that substance abuse exists in all communities and does not know boundaries of socio-economic class, race, geography, gender or age.   Following the film, there will be a panel discussion with Hopkinton residents with expertise in addiction recovery.  This program is suitable for all community members, age 14+.  For more information, see the event flyer.
