Addicts Awake film, September 20, during National Recovery Month

In recognition of September being Recovery month, Anthem Medicaid is partnering with the filmmakers of Addict’s Awake and will host a screening of this film which will be held in Evansville on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 at the Victory Theater.


The Addict’s Wake was filmed in Brown County, Indiana over a two-year period in 2019 and 2020 and is a documentary on how individuals, families and the community are impacted by substance abuse. Hear from teachers, law enforcement officers, and community leaders working hard to stem the tide of addiction. See the issue play out in courts, treatment centers, and faith-based programs. Come alongside a community searching for solutions and hope on the long journey from addiction to recovery. The Addict’s Wake shows the depth of the crisis, but also sheds light on a path forward.


Anthem wants to take this opportunity to showcase local agency resources and support systems, show the value of Managed Care in substance abuse, and continue to lay the groundwork for partnerships between providers, schools, correctional facilities, law enforcement organizations. Goals are to reduce stigmas and inspire community-based solutions.


Following the viewing of the film, a panel of local subject matter experts will answer questions from the audience as we strive together to promote education, awareness, and community resources for those in attendance. This event will be free of charge to attend, and Hors d’oeuvres will be provided prior to the screening by Anthem Medicaid.


Vendors are welcome to attend as would welcome the opportunity for your agency to set up a table and provide resource information. The community does not have to RSVP to attend but if your agency wants to participate and set up please let me know asap to reserve a table for you.
