New England School of Best Practices in Addiction Treatment 2020: Creating Recovery-Ready Workplaces: Working with Employers to Support Employees in Recovery

This training will survey the impact of substance use disorders on the economy in general and on workplaces in particular with a strong focus on the benefits of intentionally incorporating people in recovery into the workforce. Recovery-ready workplaces support their communities by recognizing recovery from substance use disorder as a strength and by being willing to work intentionally with people in recovery. They encourage a healthy and safe environment where employers, employees, and communities can collaborate to create positive change and eliminate barriers for those impacted by addiction. This training is designed to be provided to employers who are considering hiring people in recovery, not recovery professionals themselves. Recovery professionals or employment professionals taking this course will be able to use this material for messaging in conversations with prospective employers. OBJECTIVES: Participants will be able to: describe the impact of substance use disorders in the workplace; list potential barriers to employment for people in recovery; identify benefits of hiring people in recovery; define recovery; explain the relationship between language and stigma; and describe how to cultivate a recovery-ready workplace.
