This slide deck provides a brief overview of the importance of using language that helps decrease stigma associated with substance used disorders (SUDs). The slide deck is designed to be used by academic faculty in behavioral health programs, trainers, behavioral health providers, and state/county agency staff members for a variety of audiences. Each slide has notes for the presenter to provide guidance as necessary. References are included on each slide and in the notes. If you require further information on this topic, please contact the Mountain Plains Addiction Technology Transfer Center (MPATTC). You are free to use these slides and pictures but please give credit to the MPATTC when using them by keeping the branding and referencing the ATTC at the beginning of your presentation.
