Announcing 2023-2024 Anti-Stigma Initiative Sites

Addiction Policy Forum would like to introduce our Anti-Stigma Initiative Sites that have joined our efforts and are working hard within their communities to help minimize the harmful stigma surrounding addiction. Pilot sites in this initiative will play a vital role in increasing the general knowledge about addiction and correcting misinformation. The initiative measures the levels of stigma and identifies stereotypes and prejudice held by the participating sites or within their communities. 117 sites from 34 U.S. states and 3 international locations are included. Furthermore, more than 30 community service organizations, 30 treatment programs, 16 public health facilities, 11 hospitals, and 10 state/local government agencies are also a part of the initiative. We are excited to have each of these agencies join in and bring their efforts to the next level to help decrease the stigma around addiction within their communities. Please help us welcome and celebrate each of these sites' endeavors to bring change locally.
