Linwood, NJ – August 27, 2019 – Hafetz & Associates will host a free seminar on the Opioid Crisis in New Jersey and its impact on the workplace on Wednesday, September 18 from 9-10:30 a.m. The seminar will take place at Rutgers Recruiting Pavilion at Rutgers Football Stadium, at 1 Scarlett Knight Way, Piscataway, NJ 08854.

“Over 70% of employers have been affected in some way by an employee’s use of prescription drugs. This seminar will explore how employers can take action to help their employees cope and deal with behavior health conditions, which include substance abuse and mental health, without being directly involved,” explained Scott Hafetz, president of Hafetz and Associates.

Statistics show that medical claims are increasingly higher for those with behavior health conditions than those without diagnosed co-occurring behavioral health conditions. In 2018, New Jersey averaged 8.5 deaths per day due to drug overdoses, and 47% of employers reported frequent absenteeism or impaired worker performance.

Suzanne Kunis, VP of Behavior Health at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, will lead the seminar and provide an overview of lessons learned, strategy and future visions for insurance companies and their plans of coverage.

 The seminar is free to attend and will be served over coffee and a continental breakfast. Please RSVP to Sue Reese by Tuesday, September 10 by emailing sreese@srhafetz.com, or you can RSVP online by visiting this link.
