One Worker at a Time, and One Step at a Time
One worker at a time, and one step at a time… thoughtfully, deliberately, purposefully.
I’m linking to an article in The New York Times about the owners of a popular Lexington, KY, restaurant called Saul Good. A few years ago, they realized they had lost 13 employees to opioid addiction. Unfortunately, this was not just regular food industry turnover–these workers were in fact dead.
Realizing they could not sit idly by, the owners opened a new eatery, DV8 Kitchen, which focuses its entire business model on hiring people in treatment for opioid abuse and other addictions, and using the workplace as a tool for rehabilitation. This is a powerful read about changing lives, one worker at a time. The owner says, “We are just providing the piece of the puzzle that is giving people a job right away when they are getting clean.”
We see constantly the impact of addiction on our claimants, and how substance abuse ruins lives and drives up costs. Similar to these enlightened restaurant owners, we address it one claimant at a time, one prescription at a time, one functional rehabilitation at a time.
It’s a huge problem, and the best way to get started is one step at a time.
Call us. We can do better.
