Addressing Drug-Related Stigma & Bias: OOPTP Training Session

Join the Opioid Overdose Prevention Training Project team for an interactive training on Addressing Drug-Related Stigma & Bias. Drug-related stigma presents barriers to effectively supporting clients who use drugs. Our own biases are learned from a culture that stigmatizes drug use and ostracizes those with substance use disorders. This interactive training will focus on identifying and addressing our biases surrounding people who use drugs.

*Please note that this an interactive training – we will utilize several different features on Zoom for activities, including breakout rooms, annotation, and chat. Participants are highly encouraged to have their video on (if they have access to a camera) to engage in discussions and activities.*

**ASL interpreters and CART services available upon request. Please email [email protected] at least 2 weeks prior to the training to let us know of any accommodations you will need when registering.**
