The Scottish Drugs Forum (SDF) has published a new, free resource for use in the substance use field across Scotland.
“Moving Beyond ‘People First Language’ – a glossary of contested terms in substance use” supports a consensus on key concepts and terms in substance use, by defining and explaining the cause and nature of the contention, and suggesting better practice in terms of language choices.
“The Glossary” aims to improve understanding and address the stigma conveyed in some common terms and concepts current within the field, however unintentionally.
To view or download “The Glossary”, please visit the CVS Falkirk website.
