Shattering the Stigma: A MAP Substance Use and Recovery series

The UFT Member Assistance Program is introducing a new series of one-hour virtual presentations on substance use called Shattering the Stigma. We will learn from leading professionals about various addictions and interventions. Substance use affects more than 21 million Americans, regardless of race, education or career path. Together, we can normalize the conversation around substance use and shatter the stigma that harms individuals and families affected by it. 

Join with other members in a safe space where we will share strategies and resources for support. All virtual sessions will take place from 5 p.m.–6 p.m., with a 45-min presentation followed by a 15-min Q & A period.
