WHAT WE DO AT FAN
COMPASSION > STIGMA
Hopeless. Helpless. Junkie. Drug seeker. Crackhead. Deadbeat. Unfortunately, those words are still part of the stigma associated with the disease of addiction. And stigma is one of the main reasons people who need help don’t seek it. We need to work hard to eliminate that stigma, because it does way more harm than good.
At Families Against Narcotics, we believe that compassion > stigma, and we assist individuals and families affected by substance use disorder with the respect, empathy, and compassion they deserve.
DON'T GIVE UP
We live in a connected society where people are not afraid to share their negative opinions freely on any subject they see fit.
This is no different with the stigma of addiction. These are sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, siblings, and friends who deserve a beautiful life like anyone. Please help us erase the stigma of addiction!
