The stigma associated with substance misuse and addiction has an impact on recovery from many different perspectives. It damages self-esteem which can make a person reluctant to seek help. It can also cloud how a clinician provides care. Family, friends and the public can also contribute to the stigma with a lack of empathy for those struggling with the disease. This webinar will discuss how empathy in the treatment of drug addictions can help facilitate recovery.
