Transforming Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment to benefit employer-sponsored health plan members and employers

April 25 | 1-2:00 PM ET

According to a national survey in 2021, substance use among Americans has increased 30% overall since the start of the pandemic landing the impact and cost squarely on employers [1].  

In addition to the human toll on valued associates and their loved ones, job absenteeism, replacement, and training costs in a tight job market have created an inflection point – especially for our country’s largest employers – for how we treat substance use disorders going forward.

Participate in an illuminating discussion on how the treatment of substance use disorders are being reimagined for the benefit of employees and the overall health of the organizations tasked with their wellbeing.

  • Learn how this issue can greatly impact large companies.
  • Help remove the stigma around substance use disorder within your own organization.
  • See how Contigo Health, Hazelden Betty Ford, and Lionrock Recovery are changing treatment by meeting the member where they are through either in-person or virtual, at home care allowing them to continue with their work and family responsibilities.
  • Offer a new program that embraces diversity and includes a more confidential model, making it easier and more welcoming for those willing to take the first step.
  • Understand the financial impact that substance use disorder could be having on your bottom line.
  • Hear from one of the nation’s largest employers about how a substance use disorder program made a positive impact on their employees.
