Addiction Language Guide

The Addiction Language Guide serves as a comprehensive resource designed to address and combat stigmatizing language associated with addiction. Stigmatizing language often involves attaching negative labels and stereotypes to specific groups of people, contributing to adverse consequences such as social isolation, diminished self-esteem, and reluctance to seek medical assistance. This guide aims to empower individuals and organizations to eliminate and replace stigmatizing language, thereby fostering positive change and enhancing the lives of those affected by substance use disorders both within and beyond their communities.
