What every U.S. employer can do to help end the overdose epidemic
- Promote harm reduction at work. This may include installing a naloxone rescue station and posting signs telling employees where they can obtain information about naloxone and learn to recognize signs of overdose and be trained to administer naloxone.
- Reduce stigma associated with pain, drug use, harm reduction and treatment. Treat all employees with compassion and dignity. Dispel myths about substance-use disorders, opioid therapy, naloxone and promote fact and evidence-based harm-reduction information.
