Combating the Opioid Epidemic in America
The National Alliance brings together coalition members and healthcare stakeholders to address the issues and challenges employers face regarding the opioid epidemic. This initiative demonstrates the impact of opioid use on employers and employees and includes effective interventions — including healthcare and community partnerships — to prevent and treat opioid misuse. A number of coalitions have made focused efforts in their markets.
Our Path Forward
A panel of coalition leaders is defining a national framework and conducting a baseline assessment of employer efforts to deploy best practices nationwide. Alternative payment models, and an Action Brief and other educational tools will provide employers with strategies and best practices to combat opioid misuse within the workplace.
