Regulatory and societal barriers to effective treatment and prevention of substance use disorder (SUD) continue to exacerbate overdose morbidity and mortality. Improving access to recovery support within the workplace is critical to curbing the overdose epidemic. People in recovery who are employed have lower rates of return to use, engage in less criminal activity, have fewer parole violations, have more improvements in quality of life, and experience more successful outcomes following treatment.

In their poster for the 2024 Rx and Illicit Drug Summit, Madison A. Fields, Heather Gray, and Brandon George outline the role Recovery Ready Workplaces can play in reducing overdoses and helping individuals sustain recovery from SUD, as well as in strengthening communities.
