Please join The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA) with remarks from James Carroll, Director of the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy, for a convening of government and private sector stakeholders to discuss strategies to end the addiction crisis.  With drug overdoses rising almost 18% after stay-at-home orders were implemented across the country in mid-March, speakers will identify the impact of COVID-19 on the opioid epidemic and promising approaches that protect U.S. workers, our communities, and the national economy.

The impact of COVID-19  on the opioid epidemic has created barriers for those seeking addiction treatment. Now more than ever,  continued public-private partnerships to address the opioid epidemic are vital. Together, The U.S. Chamber, APCIA, The Hartford and Shatterproof will discuss strategies for companies, including the insurance industry, to implement in order to combat the addiction crisis, including employee assistance programs, education, benefits and prevention efforts. Together, partnerships can insure a true call to action across the business community for employers to lead in prevention efforts, education, addressing the stigma of addiction, and support of treatment.
