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