Panelists will present information on current overdose statistics, public awareness efforts, outreach efforts, treatment availability and options, and recovery.  Businesses may have employees that are using, or family members of employees that are using, and the panelists will be able to discuss and answer questions about these scenarios.  Additionally, it is critical that recovering individuals be able to obtain sustained employment.  Panelists will discuss employment needs of recovering individuals in Jefferson County, and what other communities have done to increase successful employment for recovering individuals.
