Stigma is a major barrier preventing millions of people who are struggling with substance use from entering treatment today. This course provides psychoeducation for professionals in terms of medication assisted treatment options, as well as, demystifying traditional recovery culture which sometimes creates covert barriers within the recovery community. This presentation is designed to help professionals break that stigma that creates an unnecessary barrier to treatment by understanding recovery oriented language and strategies that can be integrated into practice immediately.
