Tools for Employers
Together Arkansas online course
A five-module course (13-16 min. per module) gives an overview of the legal and operational issues an employer must consider in dealing with an employee’s use of opioids and other substances. The modules include best practices around how, when and why to drug test; how to handle a situation if the employee confesses or is discovered to be using harmful substances; and much more. Although each module contains valuable information, you do not have to watch them in order or in their entirety.
Module Six is the story of second chances and gives insight into the employment of people who are currently in recovery. Module Seven shows the positive impact that peer support specialists offer through lived experiences, encouragement, and hope for employees seeking long-term recovery.
