Portrait of senior woman at home

This webinar, a collaborative event between Telligen and Superior Health Quality Alliance will feature journalist and author, Sam Quinones, focusing on reducing stigma for individuals with substance use disorders (SUD). Addressing stigma is an important component of comprehensive care for individuals with substance use disorder. This event is inspired by stories from the communities featured in the successful podcast series, Shine a Light on Stigma, which was developed by Telligen and Superior Health Quality Alliance in an effort to reduce stigma related to SUD by reframing SUD as a chronic condition and not a moral failing. 

Objectives:

  • Evaluate the current state of opioids in the U.S. and their contribution to social isolation
  • Explore methods for repairing communities as outlined in White House priorities
  • Examine clinical approaches to addressing substance use disorder and reducing stigma within healthcare settings
