As we face the opioid crisis in our communities, the impact on employers and the lives and livelihoods of workers, including lost productivity, days away from work, and increased healthcare costs is staggering.
We invite the community to join our Opioid Use Reduction & Recover (OURR) Employer Forum to learn new approaches to help navigate the complex world of workers dealing with addiction as well as those who are in recovery. Further, gain resources and viewpoints that will benefit both employer and employee through addiction into recovery and back into the workplace.
