PRESENTATION:  Stigma is a major obstacle preventing millions of people who are struggling with substance use from entering treatment today. This course will provide psychoeducation for professionals in terms of medication assisted treatment options, as well as, demystifying traditional recovery culture which sometimes creates covert barriers within the recovery community. This presentation is designed to help professionals break that stigma that creates an unnecessary barrier to treatment by understanding recovery oriented language and strategies that can be integrated into practice immediately. As a result of this training, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify use strengths based language to reduce stigma associated with substance use disorders;
  • Conceptualize the factors that influence stigma associated with substance use disorders and their consequences;
  • Discuss targets and interventions aimed at addressing stigma associated with substance use; and
  • Articulate the difference between medication assisted treatment options and provide informed consultation to persons in recovery.
