We want to hear your story

Discrimination in healthcare against people who use substances takes many forms, such as:

  • treating someone differently or unequally because of their substance use or fears about substance use
  • using policies and procedures that prevent people who use substances from participating in a program or receiving services
  • failing to provide people who have a substance use disorder with a “reasonable accommodation” that is needed for participating in a program or receiving services

Disability Rights North Carolina (DRNC) is asking for stories of people who use substances who have been treated differently by a healthcare facility/provider because of their past or current substance use. These stories can help us fight for appropriate healthcare for people who use substances.
