Opioids, Pain and Absence: The Productivity Implications of Substance Use Among U.S. Workers

IBI's latest research shows that the use of prescription pain medications is widespread among U.S. employees--with serious implications for productivity. Most pain medication use did not follow a pattern of abuse or dependence--underscoring the larger issue of pain that helps fuel the opioid epidemic.

In this webinar recording, you will learn about:

  • The extent of use, abuse, and dependence of prescription pain medications and other substances among employees.
  • The lost productivity implications of substance use.
  • Guidance for managing substance use in the workforce and strategies for employers.

Erin L. Peterson, MPH and Brian Gifford, PhD of IBI discussed this new analysis.
