Give those you serve a take-home resource that provides actionable ways they can support those with SUD. This six-panel brochure can be printed and distributed at table events, in educational folders, in waiting rooms, and more.
Download the brochure art. For best results, work with your preferred printer partner, or print them double-sided on 8.5"x11" paper.
Language matters. Much of the language people use to talk about addiction can be biased and hurtful, leading to discrimination and social exclusion, which can keep people from getting the treatment they need. Use these materials to educate your community about what language to use in place of common phrases that perpetuate stigma against individuals suffering from SUD.

Many of the photos included on this webpage are stock or original photography featuring paid actors. These photos do not represent individuals suffering from substance use disorder or living in recovery. The exception to this are photos of people who are named and share their personal story about substance use disorder. We are grateful for these brave survivors' willingness to come forward to help reduce the stigma of substance use disorder and provide encouragement for those suffering from this chronic disease.
