Resources to help Hoosier communities
We can fight substance use disorder by reducing stigma. Addressing the substance use disorder epidemic is a top priority across Indiana. When we face this challenge with an open mind, it helps build stronger communities and enables those with addiction to lead healthier, more productive lives.
Request education and training so you can help spread the word in your local community. Collaborate with local leaders to help them understand the barriers to recovery faced by those with a substance use disorder. As each community begins to understand and discuss this topic, we hope to decrease the stigma associated with substance use disorder.
Help Us Spread the Word About Know the Facts and Be a Champion
Know the Facts Champions are asked to share Know the Facts resources with members of their work and home communities, to help reduce stigma across Indiana.
