Stigma, Opioid Addiction, and MAT: Evidence and Implications from a National Survey

DATE: Thursday, May 9, 2019 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT
COST: FREE
DURATION: 1 hour

This session will present findings from RTI’s survey of U.S. adults on knowledge and opinions about addiction to prescription opioids, medication-assisted therapy (MAT) and stigma toward people addicted to prescription opioids and the health care providers who care for them. We will discuss current approaches to conceptualizing stigma, their application to the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD), and the implications of the survey findings for advocacy and program design. 

Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will be 
able to:

  • Identify common perceptions and behaviors that reflect stigma
  • Analyze how various aspects of stigma impact treatment of OUD
  • Assess how anti-stigma efforts could be targeted to different population segments
