Help Break the Stigma by:

1. Not sweeping substance use disorder under the rug and becoming compassionate about tragedies caused by the stigma;

2. Addressing societal apathy towards the treatment of the illness;

3. Addressing the lack of education about the complexity of the disorders

4. Addressing the lack of adequate treatment resources and approaches.

In other words, we could break the stigma by becoming substance use disorder advocates. Be aware of your words. Educate yourself and others as well as support those in need.

    Please don’t worry about what other people think. Reach out, speak up, demand for better support and treatment. Too many people are dying to remain silent ❤️
