Embracing Change: Empowering Communities to Move Beyond NIMBY

Not in My Backyard (NIMBY) refers to the pervasive attitude that arises when communities resist the establishment of treatment facilities, harm reduction initiatives, or recovery support services from entering their neighborhoods. Join us for a webinar that will provide an overview of NIMBY and shed light on the challenges posed by NIMBYism in addressing the SUD crisis. This webinar will feature a speaker from Shatterproof, who will dive into Georgia-specific data on how stigma manifests in communities across the state, and Nick's New Beginnings – a community organization that will share their real-world experiences with NIMBY. This webinar is tailored to anyone interested in learning more about NIMBY and gathering strategies to foster empathy and community dialogue.


Georgia Recovers is a campaign brought to you by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) in partnership with Shatterproof, a nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organization (Tax ID #45-4619712) under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.
