Impacting the Stigma

Stigma is a major barrier to people getting the support they need for substance use disorders. People who are struggling with addiction often feel ashamed and isolated, and they may be afraid to seek help because they don’t want to be judged. This stigma can also affect family members, who may feel like they are to blame for the addiction or that they will be judged if they talk about it.
