Substance Use

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is a treatable mental disorder that affects the brain and behavior, leading to an inability to control the use of substances like legal or illegal drugs, alcohol, or medications. The American Heart Association and Opioid Response Network are working together to provide resources and training that will empower communities to address SUD and promote health equity. It is crucial for advocates and community leaders to learn more about substance use disorder and how to recognize it in the community.
