Anti-Stigma Education and Training
Stigma about opioid use disorder from the general community, healthcare providers, lawmakers, law enforcement, and the criminal justice system can be an inadvertent or undue barrier to treatment. Also, self-stigma from those living with opioid use disorder can deter an individual’s desire to seek treatment. Stigma is not always an easy topic to discuss. It can be rooted in a community’s culture with many layers to uncover.
Anti-Stigma Education and Training offers a conversational style to help uncover where a person’s personal and community attitudes about opioid use disorder originate.
