A Discussion of Stigma as it Affects Those with Opioid Use Disorder

“We understand that addiction is a disease but not everybody understands that and some people also think that people have a choice.”

“There is a lot of judgementalness, a lot of stigma. People think that we’re saving peoples lives that don’t deserve to be saved… I feel like we all have such value and something to contribute that maybe is not being accessed because we’re suffering from the disease of addiction at that time.”
