On-line Pledge Campaign to End Stigma – open to everyone, everywhere

For individuals and families impacted by substance use, stigma is an ever-present reality that results in discrimination, reluctance to access treatments and supports and contributes to overdoses. We can end stigma just through our language.

Words have power.

Consider the language you use when talking about someone who uses substances and use person-first and recovery-oriented language instead. Together, we can end the harm caused by stigmatizing language.

Join us in taking the pledge, then use the selfie cards to promote action and bring awareness.
