Wolf Administration Highlights Substance Use Disorder Prevention, Education Tool for Construction Industry

The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) joined the Associated Pennsylvania Constructors (APC) to discuss substance use disorder (SUD) in the construction industry, highlight the importance of education and prevention for employees in this field, and to remind them of available safety resources.

"While not often discussed, studies have shown that, when compared to other occupations, employees in the construction field have high rates of overdose deaths," said DDAP Secretary Jen Smith. "The risk of on-the-job injury remedied with an opioid prescription increases the chances for those in this field to develop opioid use disorder. We must ensure that employers and employees know about every resource available to them to support individuals suffering from substance use disorder."

Speakers include:
DDAP Secretary Jen Smith
PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian
Robert Latham, Executive Vice President of Associated Pennsylvania Constructors
