Addiction Treatment for Union Members & Leaders
March 31, 2018
Addiction doesn’t discriminate. It affects and seeks to destroy the lives of anyone it touches. It manifests without regard to race, creed or ability. Addiction treatment providers shouldn’t discriminate either. Regardless of what you do. Who you work for. How much money you make. You’re entitled to adequate and comprehensive care for addiction and mental health disorders. Everyone deserves a chance to recover in a safe, monitored, and credentialed facility. If you’re a union employee and you find yourself at the crossroads of considering options for behavioral healthcare and addiction rehabilitation. There are solutions.
The Right to Quality Care
Organized labor unions have a long history of standing up for what’s fair, right and justified. They’ve sacrificed to establish fair wages and clearer rights. Including the right to receive quality mental and behavioral healthcare services. If you feel like we’re speaking to you. You know you need to make a decision about your health and your future. Speak to your union representative about the benefits and services available to you.
Dedicated Resources & Coordinated Care
Quality programs understand that different populations require the coordination of distinct resources, benefits and personnel. For truly effective care coordination on behalf of organized labor stakeholders and beneficiaries programs have to focus on the flow of care. Things like dedicated staff members and case workers who understand the sensitive nature of addiction. Case managers who understand the flow of information in labor unions, are all essential to effective service delivery.
Union members enter treatment with a unique range of needs and challenges. The care team at their rehabilitation center must understand how to work with them in progressing through treatment. Reintegrating with their family, community, society and fraternity.
