ENDING THE OPIOID CRISIS

Set Goals to Fight the Opioid Epidemic

Home » Content » Set Goals to Fight the Opioid Epidemic

There are many different ways you, as an organization, can set goals to help make a difference in the opioid crisis. Setting goals to make a difference is really about getting involved. There are so many different things you can do to get involved, including: Raise awareness about the epidemic among employees and educate them on the overall crisis. Provide your employees with proper counseling and services, if they are experiencing an addiction problem. Volunteer your workspace, after hours, to be used as a space to host Narcotics Anonymous meetings. Write letters to your local government, voicing your concerns and willingness to get involved in making a difference. Join an Anit-Drug Coalition or become an ambassador for one of many drug-related organizations. This typically includes anything from anti-drug groups, recovery groups, and support groups. Some ways your organization may get involved require a lot of time and commitment, while others, like offering your office space as a place to host an NA meeting, does not require as much effort. Either way, anything you choose to do to make a difference, is a step in the right direction.
