Stigma of problem drug and alcohol use
A national campaign highlighting the damage caused by the stigma of problem drug and alcohol use is now taking place.
Television and newspaper adverts and posters on billboards will emphasise that a drug or alcohol problem is a health condition and judging individuals affected can have a devastating effect on their ability to seek and access help and support.
A webpage on NHS Inform will support the campaign with further information on how the public can help tackle the problem.
