RCORP-TA Guidance Module: Addressing Stigma
Stigma is a measurable barrier to achieving reductions in morbidity and mortality associated with substance use disorder (SUD)—the primary goals of RCORP Grants. Stigma surrounding SUD inhibits help-seeking, impacts access to appropriate supports, and creates significant barriers to employment, safe housing, family reunification, education, and so on.

- Defines stigma and internalized stigma
- Explores a framework to measure stigma and select target populations and tactics
- Offers a menu of evidence-based anti-stigma activities, and
