This project aimed to understand experiences of stigma and discrimination for people experiencing problematic alcohol and other drug (AOD) use in Queensland. Specifically, the research examined:
• Experiences of stigma and discrimination;
• The potential for legislation to be stigmatising;
• The settings and sectors in which stigma and discrimination occur;
• The impacts of stigma and discrimination on health and wellbeing and in particular on recovery and the ability to reconnect with the community; and
• Circumstances where stigma is not experienced, and evidence of what works to address stigma and discrimination.
