Workshop Overview
Through this workshop, participants will examine the definition and impact of OUD stigma on their rural community and will identify ways to reduce stigma, biases, and negative perceptions around recovery. Participants will increase their understanding of resources and tools available in combating stigma.
Participants will:
● Create a common definition of stigma and recognize its impact on individuals, families, providers, and their rural community
● Explore negative and positive beliefs around OUD and recovery
● Identify ways to overcome barriers and challenges to addressing stigma and to operationalize a recovery-oriented approach to reducing stigma
● Review support resources and build on relationships of participants within the workshop to learn from, and use as a resource, to reduce stigma in their rural community
