Opioid Crisis In The Workplace

Addiction to opioids, including prescription pain relievers and heroin, is a full-blown American health crisis, claiming more lives than car crashes or homicides.

The toll in lost productivity, personal injury and health care cost is staggering. In fact, the National Safety Council recently found that 70 percent of employers report problems with opioid use by employees.

Exploding The Myths

  • Not just junkies: Abusers include doctors, lawyers, celebrities, executives and regular working folks
  • 21% to 29% of patients misuse their prescribed opioid medication
  • 8% to 12% develop opioid use disorder
  • 4% to 6% transition to heroin
  • 80% of heroin addicts started with prescription opioids

  • 29% Report Decreased Job Performance
  • 29% Report Employees Dealing With Family Member’s Addiction
  • 71% Believe Prescription Drug Addiction Should Be Treated as Disease

In this eye-opening training led by an addictions treatment consultant and an experienced employment attorney, you will separate myth from fact and receive the latest guidance about how your organization should address this highly underestimated risk factor.

How To Access This Webinar

You will receive an email containing the phone number and course materials directly from the provider, Avant Resources, at least one day prior to the event.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
