Fighting Addiction in the Workplace, Through a Pandemic

Hosted by Yusuf Sherwani, MD, CEO & Co-Founder, Quit Genius

Substance abuse is on the rise and COVID-19 has only amplified the problem. As the pandemic begins to fade with the introduction of a vaccine, it is clear that the behaviors of today will become the addictions of tomorrow. Unfortunately, medical spend and lost productivity, due to addiction, is costing employers more than $25 billion per year.
Dr. Yusuf Sherwani will shine a light on the financial and business toll addiction takes on employers. From the rising costs of substance use disorders related to healthcare, to worker productivity and absenteeism.  In this webinar, Dr. Sherwani will discuss the science of habit formation as well as today’s leading addiction care solutions. From Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Health Action Council members will leave this webinar with proven strategies to help them combat addiction in their organization.  

What we'll discuss:

- Destigmatizing Addiction: Addiction is not a moral failing or character flaw. Substance use disorder is a chronic brain disease that can be managed with medical treatment. 
- Polysubstance Addictions: One of the most significant drivers of medical spend for employers. 
- Three Pillar Approach: The importance of individually tailored, holistic treatment.
