Event Description

Create an Effective Employee Drug Intervention Program to Curb Workplace Opioid Abuse

The results of studies and surveys on drug abuse at the workplace have not been very encouraging. The death rate from prescription opioids is more than four times higher than where it was in 1999. As many as 91 Americans die every day from an opioids overdose. Moreover, over 1,000 people undergo treatment in emergency rooms for misusing prescription opioids on a daily basis. Most alarmingly, 25% of people who receive opioid prescriptions for long-term, non-cancer pain management struggle with addiction. With the ever-growing rate of abusing prescription opioids in the workplace, it has become more important than ever to have an effective employee intervention program and drug testing policy in place.

Join this session with expert speaker Joe Keenan who will cover all of the elements of having an effective employee drug intervention program and a drug testing program in the workplace. He will cover in detail the background of the growing problem of prescription opioid abuse in the workplace. Joe will discuss how to combat this growing problem and will provide best practices for creating and implementing a reliable drug testing program.
