How benefit advisers can help companies address opioid addiction
from Employee Benefit Adviser
Concern over the abuse of painkillers has led addiction experts to declare the U.S. in the midst of an opioid and heroin epidemic. But, employee benefit professionals are not asking for enhanced addiction treatment coverage for their employees. Instead, benefit advisers are offering traditional alcohol and drug addiction treatment services to address the use of painkillers and heroin in the workplace. Unless an employer specifically asks about opioid addiction services, advisers often do not broach the subject. The topics of extended stays at rehab and sober living facilities are rarely addressed.
