As a leading workers’ compensation and disability insurer, we know employers can play a critical role in removing addiction stigma to help their employees live healthy, happy lives.
Responding to a National Crisis
Stigma continues to hinder efforts to end the ongoing opioid crisis. We continue to partner with nonprofits in providing education to break down addiction stigma and offer resources to further treatment and recovery.
Innovative Academic Partnership To Make a Difference
“Science and empathy are both critical to addressing the ongoing opioid crisis, and the unique training developed as part of our partnership has both. By partnering with an internationally recognized leader in evidence-based treatment, we are advancing stigma-free education and compassionate care to help more working Americans return to active, productive lives following an injury.”
We believe efforts at all levels of government and the business community are necessary to fight the ongoing opioid crisis.
In states across the country, we’re advocating for reforms proven to work, such as:
Adoption of robust drug formularies
Mandatory physician and provider education
Opioid prescription restrictions
Stronger drug monitoring programs
Erasing the Stigma: Ending the Opioid Epidemic
