Stigma surrounding addiction and mental illness has always been an impediment to eradicating the addiction epidemic. Stigma prevents people from asking for help and often causes them to isolate, which is never the answer. There are many organizations today that are working to fight the stigma of addiction, including Stamp Out Stigma, New Directions, Crossroads and now The Treatment Center.
The Treatment Center has started a movement called #NoMoreShame in order to continue to fight the stigma of addiction and mental illness. The #NoMoreShame movement stands to break the stigma of addiction and spread awareness and hope across the globe.
So far, #NoMoreShame wristbands have been sent to 47 states, the UK, Canada, South Africa, Australia and many more countries. Together we can break the stigma of addiction.
