Over the past couple of years, widespread abuse and addiction to opioids painkillers and illicit opioids has increased greatly, negatively impacting all facets of our country, including the workplace.  Public workforce development professionals are on the front lines of this crisis in helping to address this nationwide problem and finding ways to reintegrate workers affected by opioid abuse and addiction.

To assist workforce development professionals in this effort, the WorkforceGPS Team has compiled a number of resources, including fact sheets, technical assistance tools, and case studies of effective responses.  These materials have been organized on one resource page and will be updated as we identify more resources.  Addressing this ongoing crisis is a high priority for the Department of Labor, and we hope these items will be useful to you.
