WASHTENAW FAMILIES AGAINST NARCOTICS

A community-based program, Washtenaw FAN seeks to change and save lives by empowering individuals and communities through education, prevention, and support.  By partnering with area treatment and public safety professionals, the legal community, schools, and other help organizations, we are facilitating change in the way Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is viewed and treated in Washtenaw County and beyond.

I’m Still a Person: The Stigma of Substance Use & the Power of Respect
by Dr. Audrey Begun (MSW, PH.D.), is an interactive workbook created to help give people the knowledge required to address substance use-related stigma within themselves, their families, and their communities. This book examines the importance of the language we use when talking about substance use disorder and offers activities that will help spark changes in the way people think about the disease. It will also inspire us to be agents of change in environments where individuals and families may experience stigma.
