The misuse and abuse of prescription opioids is a growing concern for large employers and impacts employee productivity, workplace costs, absenteeism and disability costs, workers compensation claims, and overall medical expenses. At the same time, behavioral health is an increasing area of focus among employers and companies are making attempts to improve access and reduce the stigma associated with behavioral health treatment, including addiction. To help employers navigate this issue, the National Business Group on Health will convene experts to bring understanding to key challenges associated with the misuse and abuse of prescription opioids.
