You’re Worth It!

Campaign Overview

You’re Worth It is an anti-stigma campaign that aims to address the guilt, shame, and self-doubt felt by people who are struggling with substance use disorder. The goal is to empower people in our community to believe that they are ‘worth it’ and to not be ashamed to ask for help. We can all make a difference by supporting those around us who may be struggling.
