Survey to help Partners for Recovery program better understand beliefs, knowledge and attitudes about the disorder.
MaineGeneral Health’s Partners for Recovery program is looking to reduce stigma and increase treatment for opiate addiction in Kennebec and Somerset counties.
Stigma is a barrier to individuals with substance use disorder getting access to treatment and to staying in recovery.
Program organizers ask the public to take a brief survey to help better understand beliefs, knowledge and attitudes about opiate use disorder. This information will help develop trainings and a social marketing campaign to reduce stigma.
The survey can be found at surveymonkey.com/r/communityopinionsurvey.
For more information, call Brie Karstens at 861-5278.
Funding to MaineGeneral’s Harm Reduction Program by the Rural Health Opioid grant/Health Resources and Services Administration.
