Actually, substance abuse has no prejudice; it can happen to anyone no matter who they are.
Substance abuse is a treatable brain disease; people can recover.
Their Issue - Not mine
Substance abuse impacts the individual, their family, and community – not just the abuser.
“None of your business…” Wrong. It ensnares family, friends, co-workers, and communities.
Chances are it’s NOT secret. Social stigma is a huge impediment to getting help, “That doesn’t happen in our family…”
Not true. It is biopsychosocial matter that ensnares mental wellness. No one chooses addiction.
Incorrect. Evidence-based education is an effective tool in prevention, mitigation, and cessation.
