Centreville native, Easton Country School alum, and now Chestertown resident Rachel Goss is The Spy Recovery section’s first interview relating to the new grassroots movement to reframe the dialogue we have about addiction.
Goss talks about her long-term recovery experience and how “The Anonymous People” project has changed her perception of the way addicts see themselves and how they are viewed by society at large—both perceptions clouded by stigma.
Shifting from the stigma of addiction (even for those in long term recovery) to a focus on the recovering person’s inherent value as an equal and productive member of society is the theme of this Spy section and we invite you to participate in a new, dynamic and ongoing discussion about addiction, treatment, the celebration of Recovery.
The video is approximately six minutes in length
Note: The movie “The Anonymous People” referenced in Rachel Goss’s talk has not yet been scheduled for a Chestertown screening. A venue and schedule is being considered for a screening in Chestertown this summer. Stay tuned.
