Webinar: Substance Addiction and Abuse

October 28, 2021 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm

Expanding on findings from the American Muslim Poll 2020, a new analysis by ISPU Director of Research Dalia Mogahed explores the dynamics of stigma and support when it comes to substance addiction, abuse, and recovery in American Muslim communities. Our research found that 37% of Muslims report personally knowing a person who has or is struggling with addiction, compared to 57% of the general public and roughly the same percentage among other faith groups. Other key findings from the analysis cover the stigmas recovering addicts face and levels of community support. Join us to discuss this topic in depth with a panel of experts. For more information on the subject, read the analysis.
