A Recovery Ready Workplace is one where:
The organization mobilizes to address employee policies, practices, and stigma reduction for people affected by mental illness, alcohol and other drugs. Employees and their family members affected by mental illness and/or substance use disorder (SUD) have universal access to quality, effective Prevention, Intervention, Treatment and Recovery programs across the continuum to achieve and sustain recovery, health, wellness and connectivity to their workplace and community.
While the statistics, data and impacts are substantial, employers are taking hold of the issues to curb the public health crisis. The model for a Recovery Ready Community is rooted in data, is one that promotes employer support, wellness and health of employees affected by mental illness, alcohol and other drugs in the workforce. The model integrates healthcare, employment, the criminal justice system, housing, education and harm reduction programs to tackle these issues on all fronts.
