What is a Recovery Friendly Workplace?
Recovery friendly workplaces and employers are businesses of any type committed to making foundational change in the way they hire, treat, and support staff living in or seeking recovery from substance use and mental health disorders.
Businesses save millions each year by supporting staff in recovery.
Lost productivity due to substance misuse results in businesses across the United States losing billions each year.
Staff who are supported in their recovery are more likely to attend to their daily responsibilities at businesses.
Recovering team members are an asset to businesses and bring a range of critical thinking, problem solving, and creative solutions.
Reducing overall staff health care costs is a goal for any business. Staff in recovery utilize health benefits less, saving your company more.
