Addiction Thrives on Stigma

Kentuckians have the power to end the stigma associated with opioid use disorder and reverse the addiction crisis.

Our Mission

UNSHAME Kentucky is a statewide campaign to destigmatize opioid use disorder (OUD) by providing education on OUD-related topics and sharing the stories of people in recovery, their friends and family, and people that work in the opioid use field. By learning their stories, we come to understand that opioid use disorder is something that can affect any of us and that no one should struggle with it alone.

How to Get Involved

Share Your Story

Every story of recovery, support, and understanding is a unique experience that chips away at the stigma surrounding addiction. Share your story to show that whether or not we've experienced opioid use disorder, we all experience the challenges and joys in life that matter most.

Join Our Community

Join the UNSHAME Kentucky community and connect with local community members and organizations working to change the conversation surrounding opioid use across the state.

Spread the Word

Share UNSHAME Kentucky content with your community. Together, we can change the lives of our family, friends, and neighbors living with opioid use disorder - by making sure they feel support and encouragement, never judgment or shame, when it comes to seeking treatment.
