Stigma and Substance Use Disorder (SUD)

Thursday, February 15, 12p-1p
York Public Library, 5 Long Sands Road, York

Presenters: Alison Jones Webb, MPH, President, Nautilus Public Health and recovery advocate; Jesse Harvey, Certified Intentional Peer Support Specialist and founder of Journey House recovery residences in York County; and Jeana Coggins, Certified Drug andAlcohol Counselor, mother and mentor.

Words matter! Recovery from addiction is possible, and yet many people with alcohol and drug problems don't seek help. Research shows that one reason is the shame they feel and the stigma they face in the community. Join us at this informative lunch & learn discussion, where participants will hear from people in recovery about their personal experiences and will learn concrete actions they can take to reduce stigma and help support people in recovery in their community. Learn how to be part of the solution to creating recovery ready communities in York County!
