Stigma Free Training
Every day, more than 130 people die in the United States after overdosing on opioids. The misuse of and addiction to opioids-including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl—is a serious national health crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. Even though substance use is recognized as a chronic and fatal health condition if left untreated, there is still an opportunity to enhance the community’s perception of people living with addiction. By countering opioid addiction negative attitudinal perceptions “stigma” the community can develop a broader understanding of opioid dependence as a chronic brain disease, categorized by long-term changes in the structure and functioning of the brain, and enhanced awareness of models of care, family support and principals of community engagement. There are many paths to recovery and by addressing negative attitudinal perceptions of people living with opioid addiction—the state community can serve as an anchor of support and strength for individuals in need of recovery.
