Recovery Friendly Workplace Initiative

CHWE has received federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act to help respond to the staggering increase in substance-use, mental health needs, and substance-related deaths in the American workforce.

This project works with partners and employers to educate businesses, guiding them in creating workplaces that support workers struggling with common behavioral health conditions including substance use and addiction. The RFW Initiative provides education, training, and resources to help managers and individuals implement workplace practices and support for employees in treatment and recovery.

In partnership with the CU Johnson Depression Center and the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention, we aim to address the national mental health crisis and substance use epidemic made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic.
