Us and them: the stigma of sobriety

Published

on

 


America has faced a pandemic, a polarizing election, and battles for racial equity over the past year. But there has been another crisis that continues to fuel the opioid epidemic. Deaths are on the rise with more than 1,200 West Virginia people dying of overdoses last year. The struggle for sobriety now deals with its own tragic division When is anyone sober?

The road to recovery comes in many forms. For certain works of abstinence. But others, especially those who are addicted to opiates, find they need help getting rid of these powerful drugs. For their recovery, they turn to drug-assisted treatment. This approach has divided the treatment world and created a stigma around sobriety.

This episode of Us & Them is presented with the support of the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, the CRC Foundation and the West Virginia Humanities Council.
