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.

  • 21% to 29% of patients misuse their prescribed opioid medication
