NSC, Shatterproof partner to end addiction stigma in the workplace


Itasca, IL — The National Safety Council and Shatterproof are working together to end the stigma surrounding addiction.

Addiction is a hidden workplace epidemic, affecting workers nationwide and costing employers billions of dollars annually – and COVID-19 is only making it worse. Stigma is a leading barrier to treatment and recovery, but employers can make a difference. NSC is teaming up with the national nonprofit to give employers, human resources professionals and supervisors the resources they need to address this stigma and ensure employees know they’re supported.
