Stigma and Substance Use Disorder (SUD)

April 25, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Words matter! Recovery from addiction is possible, yet many people with alcohol and drug problems don’t seek help. Research shows that one reason is the shame and stigma they face in the community.

Join us for an informative lunch-and-learn discussion with certified drug and alcohol counselors, prevention experts, and people in recovery. Hear their personal stories and learn about concrete actions that can reduce stigma and help support people in recovery. Learn how to be part of the solution for creating recovery-ready communities in York County.

Presenters include:

  • Eric Haram, LADC, director of the York Hospital Recovery Center
  • Susie McKenna, recovery coach and advocate
  • Sally Manninen, director of the Choose To Be Healthy Coalition
  • Lacey Bailey, certified drug and alcohol counselor with Sweetser

There will be a short Narcan training at the end of the presentation, and free Narcan will be available to participants upon request. To receive the overdose antidote, simply provide a shipping address when registering for the program.
