Help End The Stigma Of Addiction

I saw this on a government website this week and I just had to share...

Take these important steps to help reduce stigma:

  • do not define any person by their drug use

  • be respectful, compassionate and caring to those who use drugs

  • educate your friends and family - pass on facts and challenge stereotypes

  • remember that addiction is a treatable medical condition, not a choice, and is deserving of care just like any other medical condition

  • be aware of your attitudes and behaviours because they may be influenced by stereotypes, negative stories and images about people who use drugs

I was just too good to not pass along. More can be found at this website listed below. Stay strong and keep coming back!
