Language is powerful

Language Matters

Language Matters, a new resource from the Network of Alcohol and other Drugs Agencies (NADA) and the NSW Users and AIDS Association (NUAA), has been developed for the community-based AOD sector. The resource encourages workers to move away from outdated terms like ‘drug user’ and ‘addict’ that can stigmatise people who use drugs. The resource was developed in consultation with CMO/NGOs and government AOD workers and people who use drugs.
