Stigma & Substance Use Disorder

Stigma is a factor that can prevent those with substance use disorders from receiving evidence-based practices that allow them to seek and stay in recovery. This training is led by someone with lived experience of drug use, overdose, and navigating the care continuum to eventually becoming a Peer Recovery Support Specialist. We will look at this story and the role stigma played in delaying and distressing the recovery process. Participants will have the opportunity to observe how stigma affects their own experiences and discuss ways to shift attitudes and improve actions which lead to better outcomes and more people in recovery.

This training will take place at the Midwest Conference on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse.
