The Opioid Epidemic: Its Impact in the Workplace

The opioid epidemic and treatment is costing employers big. Consider these facts:
- 99 percent of patients receive opioids after surgery
- First lifetime exposure to opioids may be after surgery
- 259 million prescriptions for opioids were written in 2012 – enough for one bottle for every American adult.
The Alliance is tackling this topic head on with insights from multi-stakeholders offering their perspectives and ideas on how employers can help combat this issue.
The Alliance is pleased to offer this event in partnership with National CooperativeRx.
