State hopes to engage communities, businesses in opioid crisis

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Chamber of Commerce and Industry has launched a new program in hopes of bringing businesses and communities across the state together to discuss the effects of opioid abuse.

The program, called the “opioid toolkit,” has a resource for businesses to use when addressing substance abuse, a list of resources across the state, and other topics for business leaders in Tennessee.

The toolkit is used alongside regional meetings with chambers of commerce across the state, which will help to link businesses with resources to identify, manage, and treat substance abuse, while also promoting workplace and community safety.

For more information on the toolkit, visit www.tnchamber.org/otk.
