Stop Calling Me an Addict! I'm in Long Term Recovery!
Jacob Spellis & David Nalls | September 22 | 10:10 - 11:10 AM | Room 3010A
The stigma associated with addiction is so ingrained in our society that it may keep people from getting well. This training will empower people to be proud of their recovery and not shame addiction. Recovery message training helps eliminate barriers to recovery resulting from the stigma and discrimination associated with addiction. This workshop will discuss how as a community we can start advocating for a system of care that supports recovery throughout the individual’s lifespan. This talk will focus on supporting the development of addiction recovery advocates and leadership within the recovery community.
