The New England ATTC in partnership with the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addictions Services is providing a targeted TA workshop titled, "Coming into the Light: Breaking the Stigma of Substance Use Disorders" training on 3/15/23 from 9:00-4:00 (EST) with subject matter expert Taylor D'Addario. Stigma is a major barrier preventing millions of people who are struggling with substance use from entering treatment today. This course will provide psychoeducation for professionals in terms of medications for opioid use disorders (MOUD), while deconstructing stigmatizing views that pose barriers to MOUD in the recovery community. This presentation is designed to help professionals break the stigma that creates an unnecessary barrier to treatment by understanding recovery-oriented language and strategies that can be integrated into practice immediately.
