It's always a great time to discover that RECOVERY IS GOOD BUSINESS! According to the National Safety Council, about 16% of employees live with a substance use disorder (SUD). A recent study revealed that close to one-third of individuals with SUD reported increased alcohol consumption (31%) and other drug use (29%) during the COVID pandemic. Providing resources to assist workers with their SUD is a good business investment.
Join us as we share the fundamentals of creating a recovery-friendly workplace, so you can make positive changes in how you hire and support staff living in or seeking recovery from SUDs. In this interactive course, we will focus on 4 core elements:
Your organization’s recovery-friendly workplace assessment score & estimated yearly SUD costs
Recovery Friendly Workplace Toolkit:
Sample employee surveys, business statements, business policies, and ready-to-display posters
SUD & Recovery Resources:
Resilient Frederick County resource guide & Peer to Peer support
SUD Awareness & Education:
Purple Certification from Frederick County Goes Purple showing you've been trained to lean in safely and intelligently to care for coworkers, friends, and family members with SUD. Narcan training from Frederick County Health Department
Whether you are looking to support individuals with SUD in your business, increase retention and decrease health care costs, or are looking to hire individuals in recovery, this presentation provides you with the foundational principles and best practices for creating a recovery-friendly workplace!
