I found a great article from Dr. David Sack on Psychology Today that lays out five top myths people associate about those with substance use disorders. They are worth some thought as we work together to end the stigma of addiction.
Honest, courageous and insightful aren’t words typically used to describe drug addicts. But if given the chance, many addicts end up developing these qualities and contributing to society in a way they never imagined possible. These successes occur in spite of major obstacles, from the ever-present threat of relapse to the pervasive stereotypes addicts encounter along the way.
