Participants will learn:

  • How to identify unusual or repetitive financial behavior that could indicate addiction.
  • What the opioid epidemic is, how we got here and impact to the economy, businesses, and families.
  • What questions to ask and how to have a conversation about addiction and its financial implications.
  • Resources to offer clients facing opioid addiction and where to send them for help.
