Opioid Toolkit

TN Chamber Presents: Tools to Help Employers Navigate the Opioid Crisis

Join us for a breakfast discussion, connect with recovery resources, and learn how to create programs to support employees struggling with opioid dependence.  Click one of the four locations/dates below to register now - It is FREE to attend, but pre-registration is preferred.    

Each event will highlight local resources and organizations employers can work with to prevent opioid misuse in the workplace, create programs to reduce stigma, and help direct opioid dependent employees to recovery services.  We’ll convene employers with first responders, law enforcement, recovery organizations, and community leaders to foster meaningful dialog on working together to solve this community and economic crisis.

 

First Steps:

In order to get started, we suggest you develop a cross-functional advisory team and update your company’s mental health and substance use benefits coverage. These two steps are great ways to make sure your company’s substance use disorder program begins successfully.
