There are thousands of people in recovery from addiction unaware of their civil rights under the ADA. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ensures that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. This includes people with alcohol use disorder and substance use disorders. Find out how the ADA addresses alcohol and substance use disorders differently. These differences will be illustrated with scenarios about alcohol, opioids, cocaine and marijuana. People with addiction are people with disabilities, too. Learn about civil rights and obligations!
