Sick Not Stupid is an educational app for anyone affected by opioid use disorder.
Sick Not Stupid has one purpose: to help people recover by sharing what weve learned from research and from patient behavior over the years.
Were advocates for treatment. We want to help you fight shame. We dont believe people should be punished for seeking help.
Because despite what you may have heard, opioid addiction does not discriminate. Nor is it the untreatable monster that we used to believe it was.
You can get better.
You can recover.
With the overdose epidemic shattering lives all over the country, its truer now than ever.
We want you alive. If youre dead, you cant recover.
Our mission is to help you know what to expect in treatment, to identify obstacles, find support groups, and most of all, to free you from shame.
