  • What the basics of opioid use and addiction are and how it affects the workplace
  • How to use data to understand the status of opioid use, misuse, and OUD among employees and dependents with healthcare coverage
  • What benefit strategies direct employees to evidence-based care for prevention, treatment, and recovery from opioid misuse and OUD
  • How to design workplace policies that protect and support employees and employers and improve workplace culture
  • What legal issues may pertain to addressing substance use in the workplace
  • The toolkit can be viewed here.

    Today, approximately 80 employers and other healthcare stakeholders convened to mark the release on this toolkit and discuss the recommendations made and existing goals and challenges that remain. For employers who were unable to join us at this event: The Kentuckiana Health Collaborative will host an interactive webinar (online event) on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 from 12:00pm-1:00pm EDT to review and discuss the employer toolkit.
