Recovery Ready Workplace Program
Addiction and substance use disorders (SUD) cost the United States billions of dollars per year in healthcare costs, criminal justice involvement, and lost work and productivity. More than 15 million Americans with current or past SUD are members of the workforce. MassHire Holyoke, in partnership with the Hampden County Workforce Board, is tackling this challenge head-on through the Recovery Ready Workplace Program. The Recovery Ready Workplace Program is a voluntary initiative that provides information, education, and resources to Hampden County businesses to support employees in recovery from addiction.
