This presentation explores how injecting opiate users on a methadone treatment programme experience stigma as addicts, and service users in pharmacy and medical settings. We explore motivations for injecting, which we will suggest, create conditions for experiencing shame at the micro interactional level, influenced by macro institutional factors. The Scottish drug policy document ‘The Road to Recovery’ (2008) defines recovery as ‘drug free’, creating potential for stigma of service users receiving methadone maintenance treatment.
