Morning Plenary - Coming into the Light - Breaking the Stigma of Substance Use Disorders

Stigma is a major obstacle preventing millions of people who are struggling with substance use from entering treatment. This course provides psychoeducation for professionals in terms of medication assisted treatment options and demystifying traditional recovery culture which sometimes creates covert barriers within the recovery community. It 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.
•Identify/use strengths-based language to reduce stigma associated with SUDs;
•Conceptualize factors that influence stigma associated with SUDs and their consequences;
•Discuss targets/interventions aimed at addressing stigma associated with substance use; and
•Articulate the difference between medication assisted treatment options and provide consultation to persons in recovery.
