State Without StigMA - Gov. Baker Launches Public Information Campaign
November 4, 2015 - Governor Baker announced the launch of a new campaign aimed at ending the stigma against people suffering from addiction.
The stigma of drug misuse keeps people from seeking treatment. Words like “junkie,” “addict” and “druggie” can hurt, damaging self-image and standing in the way of recovery. Addiction is not a choice. It’s a chronic disease similar to diabetes, heart disease and arthritis.
Get the facts and embrace a community that needs our support. Join us as we make Massachusetts a #StateWithoutStigMA.
The campaign will run on radio spots, billboards, online videos, and elsewhere over the next several months. You can follow it on the Mass.gov website, on Twitter and Facebook using #StateWithoutStigMA.
