This presentation educates and informs participants about how societal, political, and worldview perspectives can impact the implementation of effective treatment for marginalized populations with addiction and substance abuse disorder (SUD). The public stigma demonstrated by society can often influence the recovery process, as well as disrupt the relapse prevention plan for marginalized populations with SUD. The presenter discusses global social justice issues related to racism, provides evidence of current SUD literature and research, and highlights strategies on how to decrease stigma for marginalized populations coping with SUD.
