Description

How is your company managing the impact of addiction in the workplace?

Hear from nationally recognized speaker Michael Botticelli on the current addiction crisis and its impact on our state.

One million people in this country are not working due to opioid use disorder, while 55% of people with an opioid addiction are employed. Both factors have a negative impact on the workforce and the workplace and cause lost productivity and increased health care costs.

We will provide attendees with insights and tools to take a more proactive role in confronting the effects of addiction on their organization and encouraging a healthy and safe environment for all.
