Most of us know someone affected by substance use. Statistics on overdose-related deaths show us that the opioid crisis is affecting Canadians from all walks of life. But those affected continue to feel stigmatized. Stigma, or negative attitudes or beliefs, can have a major impact on the quality of life of people who use drugs, people in recovery and their families. It can prevent people from getting help. It can also reduce the quality of help people receive and make their condition worse. There are ways we can all help reduce stigma and it is important that we do.
