MEANINGFUL EMPLOYMENT The Key To Lasting Abstinence and Recovery
How to create a launch pad to meaningful employment for those in recovery? That’s the subject of the Fletcher Group’s next monthly Webinar two weeks from today on Thursday, August 1 at 2 pm EST. Hosted by Fletcher Group Founder and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ernie Fletcher and Fletcher Group Director of Employment Services Lori Baier, the Webinar will focus on why those with an Opioid Use Disorder miss 18 more days of work each year, why only 58 percent keep their jobs for more than a year, and what recovery home operators and staff can do to overcome the unique challenges involved in providing training and creating employment opportunities in rural communities.

We all know that Substance Use Disorders impact employment, retention, and the employer’s bottom, but Fletcher and Baier will take a deeper, more detailed look at why it happens and how to address it. Baier in particular will describe a wide variety of programs she’s initiated at recovery homes to help prepare residents for life after leaving a residence, including workforce training and social enterprise. With absenteeism, healthcare costs, and lost productivity costing the U.S. economy $81 billion a year, this is also a great Webinar for progressive employers who have heard that those in recovery often excel as employees in terms of work ethic, team work and loyalty.
