Smart and Simple Business Practices That Enhance Recovery

“A healthy recovery requires a decent opportunity at a meaningful vocation. There is nothing worse than getting sober and experiencing a dead-end meaningless career path. Also need to learn how to have fun in sobriety and forming relationships.”

Recovery Friendly Workplaces (RFW) support their communites through a mindset and actions that show they understand that recovery from substance abuse and mental health disorders is a path of strength and thus commit to working intentionally to aid those new to recovery or who have long walked that path.  RFWs create healthy and productive and safe environments that maximize the efforts and results or their employees and thus their communities.

A company that embraces positive workplace culture practices that support recovery from substance abuse disorder (SUD) and mental health issues strengthens its performance related to financial, customer service, productivity and employee engagement.
