Across America, government leaders are working to fight the battle of the opioid crisis plaguing our communities. Employers are well positioned to play a role in preventing and addressing opioid dependence with employees and their families. As such, Shelby County Government has purposely developed this Plan Guide to identify and implement strategies to prevent and treat opioid addiction. Shelby County Government has realigned its initiatives on Total Health Wellness and Employee Safety to specifically incorporate improved benefit strategies to target opioid addiction prevention and to bring more awareness of the issue. This focus will not only ensure the health and wellness of our families but will strengthen our efforts and align with our community’s public health programs. We have provided a short video and an opioid guide as a resource for our community and employees use. Please follow the links below for more information.
