A JLUSA Course on Stigma

Addressing the Stigma around Substance Use Disorders


Substance use disorders are some of the most highly stigmatized health conditions worldwide. Stigma creates barriers to healthcare and leads to lower engagement and retention in addiction treatment.


This course was developed by JCOIN and JustLeadershipUSA (JLUSA) to help educate individuals involved with the criminal justice system on the latest research and innovations around addiction and criminal justice stigma. The course takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, and features leading experts on stigma within the SUD and criminal justice fields.


Certificates of participation are provided upon completion of the course.
