It is projected that the cost of the opioid crisis in the United States will hit $200 billion in 2020. This crisis hits home for many of us, both personally and professionally. For businesses, the impact of this epidemic can be felt within the organization as this relates to employees’ health and overall health care spend.
In this one-hour, interactive webinar, industry experts William Beecroft, MD, Medical Director of Behavioral Health and Erin McGuire, PharmD Clinical Pharmacist will provide an update on the opioid crisis in detail, discuss the connections between behavioral health and opioid use, and educate HR professionals on what the health care industry is doing to combat the problem. HR professionals will gain a better understanding of the unlikely faces of people who may be addicted to these often prescribed and potentially deadly medications and how they can help their employees get the care they need.
