Schottland. Moving Beyond ‘People First Language’ – a glossary of contested terms in substance use 

The Glossary supports a consensus on some key concepts and terms in substance use by defining and explaining the cause and nature of contention and suggesting better practice in terms of the language choices we make.  The central aim is to improve understanding and address the stigma betrayed in some common terms and concepts current within the field.
