Newsletter cover: Addressing Stigma and SUDs
Prevention in Our Native Communities Vol 3 Issue 1 Fall 2022
November 15, 2022

The National American Indian and Alaska Native PTTC has published its most recent newsletter. The theme for this issue is Addressing Stigma and SUDs. 

This issue focuses on the negative impact stigma has on Natives in the early phases of development of a substance use disorder. People in this situation could profit from early intervention but may feel embarrassed because of the stigma associated with substance use/abuse. The main article describes ways to ensure that culturally appropriate prevention efforts are both trauma-informed and non-stigmatizing.
