“Stop the Stigma Day” with Malden Overcoming Addiction

MOA Stop the Stigma

In collaboration with Malden Overcoming Addiction, the City of Malden and Malden Public Schools held the annual “STOP THE STIGMA DAY” event on Wednesday, March 8th. In honor of the initiative, Mayor Gary Christenson issued a Proclamation designating the second Wednesday in March hereafter as Malden Stop the Stigma Day.

Malden Overcoming Addiction (MOA) is a community partner whose mission is to connect the community with addiction support and recovery services, remove the stigma of addiction, and fight to eliminate overdose fatalities in Malden and surrounding communities. The annual MOA “Stop the Stigma Day” is about leveraging the collective power of Malden’s community to bring attention to the stigma surrounding addiction.

Malden Overcoming Addiction has brought the “Stop the Stigma Day” into the Malden Public Schools, the Cheverus School and Malden Catholic High School for the last several years and has used social media and personal appearances as platforms advocating that young people help all take a step forward in eliminating the stigma that surrounds addiction. They aim to create a safer and more supportive environment for recovery and prevention.
