In the role of an Account Manager at Ulliance, many are working with companies who are facing the current opiate crisis. This epidemic is not only having a dollars and cents impact on the workforce – for many companies, the heroin epidemic is having an adverse impact on the community as a whole. In many cases, companies are having a difficult time filling job vacancies due to the complex and/or specialized nature of the work. As a result, more companies are changing their Alcohol & Drug Policies to encourage employees with a substance abuse problem to come forward and ask for help. Ulliance has worked with company HR departments and Safety Directors to revise Alcohol & Drug Policies based on our expertise and SHRM best-practice guidelines (standard EAP programs don’t offer this and companies would have to partner with a third party and pay to have this done). One of our Ulliance Account Managers works with two companies where such policies are in place – if an employee self-discloses a problem with alcohol or other drugs, the company will help the employee find appropriate treatment. Referral to the EAP is a part of this process. But the partnership with Ulliance goes beyond EAP counseling. Ulliance provides unlimited management and HR consultations regarding substance use issues in the workplace, and any another HR issue or problem.

Imagine not waking up to an alarm clock. Then picture yourself enjoying a nice cup of coffee or tea before heading off to a late morning yoga class, followed by lunch with a friend, topped off with an afternoon meditation class and a long brisk walk. You retire for the evening with a sensible, healthy dinner and a good book or movie.

Does this sound like a typical day for you? Probably not. It’s easy to come up with a list of ways to de-stress: yoga, taking classes, exercise, quality time with friends and family, pursuing a favorite hobby. But how realistic is it to get all of that done in one day? Or even in one week?
