While opioid prescriptions continue to decrease, deaths due to opioids continue to rise.  Why is this the current situation in the United States? An area of concern that remains is stigma related to opioid use, misuse, addiction, and treatment. This webinar focuses on opioid use and stigma. Through research and experiences, we will review the history of stigma and shame in relation to opioid use disorder, and the impact on recovery.  The webinar will also present ideas on decreasing stigma and shame in patient centered care.
