In honor of National Recovery Month, HHS Region 1 would like to highlight the important role of recovery friendly workplaces. 


The four major dimensions of recovery remain: Home, Community, Health and Purpose which have been critical pillars on the road to recovery. The Recovery Friendly Workplace Initiative promotes individual wellness by empowering workplaces to provide support for people recovering from a substance use disorder.

This initiative speaks to the strength and hope that Purpose provides, bringing meaningful daily activities such as a job, school, volunteerism, family caretaking, or creative endeavors, and income, that helps to participate fully in society. The webinar will provide an overview of the Recovery Friendly Workplace Initiative; An IBEW perspective; Employer Involvement, Powerful Employee Testimony, and the important role of RFWs in Economic Mobility.
