Employers & Addiction
What can employers do?
As an employer, you may be wondering what you can do to help support your employees and get your team back on track. The answer is to educate yourself and work toward becoming a Recovery Ready Workplace.
Recovery Ready Workplaces promote individual wellness by creating work environments that further the mental and physical well-being of employees; and proactively prevent substance misuse and support recovery from addiction in the workplace and the community.
Employers, employees, customers, and society all benefit from recovery-ready workplace policies. Among the benefits are an expanded labor force, increased worker well-being, decreased turnover, improved productivity, and reduced health care costs. Employers adopting such policies help to reduce societal stigma and misunderstanding by fostering a culture in which Substance Use Disorders and related mental health issues are recognized as a treatable health conditions from which one can recover, and people in or seeking recovery are welcomed and supported in the workplace.
What is a Recovery Ready Workplace?
RRW policies are based on the recognition that Substance Use Disorder is a health problem and that employers have both a role and an interest in preventing it, facilitating access to appropriate care and support, and educating the workforce to reduce stigma and increase SUD and recovery literacy across the organization. The policies fall into four main categories.
Prevention & Risk Reduction
Openly acknowledge that addiction is an issue for many people, identify potential workplace risk factors and address them.
Education & Training
Provide information at all levels of the organization on Substance Use Disorders and recovery, working to reduce stigma and misunderstanding.
Hiring & Employment
Adopt fair chance hiring and employment policies and provide reasonable accomodations to employees in or seeking recovery.
Ensure employee access to needed services and supports employee assistance programs, insurance plans, and wellness initiatives.
