Language Matters

Stigmatizing language reinforces negative stereotypes. Person- first language focuses on the person, not the disorder.

Example:  “a person with substance use disorder” means that the individual has a problem that can be addressed. In contrast, calling someone an “addict” implies that the person  is the problem.
