The Share your Opioid Story initiative is hosting community conversations to share stories behind the statistics of the opioid crisis. In doing so, we hope to educate others on the realities of this critical community issue, address stigma associated with substance use disorders, and reduce barriers for people with substance use disorder by raising awareness of the many ways this issue affects individuals, families, and communities.

During this workshop event, local partners will discuss solutions to combat stigma in the community, and we will discuss ways each of us can address stigma. We invite you to join us to share your opioid story or simply to learn more about how we can all work together to address the issues facing our communities.

We invite you to share your story and discuss solution-based practices to reduce stigma and prevent barriers to recovery in your community.
