Culturally Competent and Person-Centered Communication for Opioid Abuse Prevention Conversations, Dr. Jan Kavookjian
Stigma producing language is problematic in the fight for opioid abuse prevention and opioid use disorder. Persons who feel judged are less likely to
seek treatment and are more likely to drop out of treatment. Learning how to communicate in a person-first manner can help persons with substance use disorder (SUD) feel less judged and more supported.
