Substance use disorder (SUD) is an umbrella term that encapsulates opioid use disorder (OUD), stimulant use disorder, and other addictions. In recent years, we have seen a significant increase in the number of people living with OUD and in overdoses related to OUD, including fentanyl. Each person’s experience with SUD is unique. Whether you are looking for resources for yourself or want to learn how to support someone close to you, there are many ways to get help.
