Shatterproof Campaign to End SUD Stigma

April 7, 2021

Stigma is a significant part of the opioid crisis and affects the treatment/support that the Centers of Excellence provide. Research suggests that stigma can be reduced so that society will view the disease of addiction differently. The COEs are looking for ways to learn how to affect change to confront the pervasive stigma of the opioid/substance use crisis.
