Stop Stigma:
End Opioid Bias in Gaston County

Explore stories of Opioid Use Disorder in your community. You'll hear from those who experienced addiction themselves or walked alongside a loved who has struggled with OUD. Our hope is these stories will help to stop the stigma of opioid addiction and instead, encourage others to support and advocate for those struggling.
