Description

Presented in partnership with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, this free program is designed to empower Pennsylvania employers with the resources needed to develop drug education and prevention programs in the workplace.

The National Safety Council reports that 75% of U.S. employers say their workplace has been directly affected by opioid usage but only 17% feel well prepared to deal with the issue. And while employee wellness programs continue to deliver increases in productivity and performance, there remains a need for behavioral health resources to address addiction and other drug usage disorders. To this aim, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has expanded their focus to include workplace resources.

Program Highlights

  • Identifying drugs in the workplace
  • Research and trends of drugs in the workplace
  • Misinformation from the Employer’s perspective
  • Prevention Resources for Employers
  • Practical solutions and strategies
  • Operation Prevention: Workplace Modules
