Substance use disorders (SUD) are one of the most highly stigmatized health conditions worldwide, and stigma creates barriers to early intervention, screening, treatment, and effective recovery, particularly in healthcare and criminal justice settings.

This course was developed by Addiction Policy Forum, the National Judicial Task Force to Examine State Courts’ Response to Mental Illness, and JCOIN to help educate judges and court staff on the latest research and innovations around addiction and criminal justice stigma. The course takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, and features leading experts on stigma within the SUD and criminal justice fields.
