Stigma is the use of negative stereotypes to judge or discriminate.
Unfortunately, stigma is one of the largest, most impactful barriers that people who use drugs face on a daily basis. People who use drugs come from all walks of life, we don’t know who might be struggling. Talk to your friends and family about drug use.
