Thank you to everyone who showed their support yesterday (especially our students) and for participating in our online campaign #MaldenStopTheStigma day. The day exceeded our expectations and was a huge success!
Stigma is one of the leading barriers for people with substance use disorder who are seeking treatment; we must remove the stigma associated with substance use to help create change and improve the health of our community.
We know this will not happen overnight but together we are moving in the right direction.
We also would like to thank Superintendent John Oteri and all the Malden Public Schools as well as the Cheverus School and Malden Catholic High School for allowing MOA to visit and help educate our students on stigma! #TogetherWeCan
