Part 2: Improving Treatment for Substance Abuse Disorder

The opioid epidemic brought substance use disorder (SUD) to the forefront of the national conversation, but prevalence, coverage, and treatment have been challenges for decades. Few providers in many areas, a lack of evidence for many treatments, and the deep stigma associated with people who experience SUD have been and continue to be challenges. Meanwhile, over 70,000 Americans die annually from overdose and only about 10% of people who could benefit from treatment get it.

Attend this Virtual Summit to increase your knowledge of employer strategies for addressing SUD in the workplace, best practices for identifying and increasing access to evidence-based treatment, and emerging approaches to help connect employees and their dependents who are struggling with SUD to get access to the help they need.
