Opioid Crisis in the Workplace: A Proactive Approach for Employers

Oct 11, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm, Lyndhurst Community Center

Ohio has one of the nation’s highest per capita overdose death rates and has become the posterchild for the opioid crisis in national media. This is a public health crisis and a dire threat to the workforce and the economic vitality of our state. American employers lose $80 billion annually in productivity, absenteeism, accident and healthcare costs due to drug abuse and addiction. One in three employers do not have any element of a comprehensive drug-free workplace program in place to protect their businesses.

CSU Small Business Development Center and HRCC have partnered together to bring a panel of experts from various organizations to address the current opioid epidemic crisis and share what resources are available to protect their businesses, while also assisting their employees and their families to become stable, healthy and well.

Panelists:
• Dr. Jeanne Lackamp – Director, Psychiatry and Medicine, UH Cleveland Medical Center; Associate Professor, Psychiatry, CWRU School of Medicine; Director, Pain Management Institute, University Hospitals
• Karen Pierce – Managing Director of Policy Development & Training at Working Partners
• Richard N. Selby II – Partner & Attorney at Law managing Commercial Litigation Department at Dworken & Bernstein CO., L.P.A.
