Healing the Stigma of Addiction

A Guide for Treatment Professionals

Pamela Woll, MA, CADP
 
The stigma that our society attaches to addiction can serve as a lethal weapon.  Stigma feeds into the forces of shame, isolation, and denial that push people deeper into the disease process and farther away from the hope of recovery.  Stigma also pushes public policy away from medical responses and toward the criminaliztion of symptoms and the large-scale punishment of people in desperate need of treatment.
 
Available for free download, Healing the Stigma of Addiction:  A Guide for Treatment Professionals provides information and workbook exercises that can help clinicians:
  • Reach a better understanding of stigma
  • Address the effects of stigma in their clients' lives
  • Explore options for reducing stigma in society
Healing the Stigma of Addiction was written for, and published by, the Great Lakes Addiction Technology Transfer Center.
