Join us at this one-day Recovery-Friendly Workplace Summit and learn how you can contribute to a healthy, safe and stigma-free work environment.
Employers play a critical role in fighting addiction. Because this disease affects employees and theirfamilies, it also affects the workplace. Learn about the economic and cultural benefits of raising awareness of this disease and proactively supporting employees who seek help.
