The Addict's Mom-Stop Calling Us Addicts!

This petition had 151 supporters

The Addict's Mom is an organization founded by the mother of a child lost to substance use disorder. They provide support and advocacy to other parents whose children use substances. They claim to stand against stigma; yet they have repeatedly spurned the requests of individual members of the recovery community to stop referring to people with substance use disorder as "addicts". These parents have honorable intentions but they fail to understand how stigmatized language makes it hard for their children to get quality treatment, and even contributes to their deaths. Help us to convince them to use empowering language in order to help families who still suffer from substance use disorder without doing real harm.
