Memo: To All Work Comp Payers
Re: Addiction Issues
Conclusion: It’s on your nickel and can’t be ignored.

is not always due to lack of willpower.
patients are prone to relapse.
is sometimes treatable with the right medication.
makes everything else worse (and costly).
hampers functional restoration.
can be successfully treated!
