Reducing stigma for persons living with addiction and substance use disorders is critical for equitable prevention efforts. Prevention professionals can create a climate of care for individuals and families who have been impacted by SUDs by examining the language we use. In this one hour webinar, Addiction Psychiatrist, Alëna A. Balasanova, M.D., will present about the importance of stigma reduction and the power of the language.
