  Infographic to assist special populations, providers and organizations in disseminating an infographic in myths versus reality of substance use. Many people don't understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs. They may mistakenly think that those who use drugs lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop their drug use simply by choosing to. In reality, drug addiction is a complex disease, and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will. Drugs change the brain in ways that make quitting hard, even for those who want to. Fortunately, researchers know more than ever about how drugs affect the brain and have found treatments that can help people recover from drug addiction and lead productive lives.

  Acronyms can improve memorability. Proper use of acronyms can benefit listeners. First and foremost among their benefits is increased memorability. Acronyms can also help form the culture of organizations, work groups, and professional disciplines. They can even shave a few seconds off the length of many communications.However, overusing acronyms unconsciously can be damaging and abusive to listeners. All too often, people aren't even aware of their acronym usage, nor have they thought about the appropriateness of using acronyms with a target audience. This deadly combination can result in: Confusion for — and alienation of — your listeners. Mistakes and disagreements based on false interpretations your listeners may make. Cheapened listener-perceived value of your products, solutions, and/or services. This infographic is to assist special populations, providers and organizations in understanding the most commonly used acronyms in public health, behavioral health, and addiction medicine.

This webinar will discuss how historically menthol products have been predatorily marketed to marginalized groups and most conspicuously to African Americans. The results of predatory marketing has led to 85% of adults and 94% of teen African American smokers to smoke menthol cigarettes. Black folks die disproportionately from tobacco-related diseases compared to other races and ethnic groups. Menthol isn't deadly itself, but it allows the poison to go down easier.

The ATTC Network understands that words have power. A few ATTC products developed prior to 2017 may contain language that does not reflect the ATTCs’ current commitment to using affirming, person-first language. We appreciate your patience as we work to gradually update older materials. For more information about the importance of non-stigmatizing language, see “Destroying Addiction Stigma Once and For All: It’s Time” from the ATTC Network and “Changing Language to Change Care: Stigma and Substance Use Disorders” from the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS).
