Recovery Friendly Workplaces: help in fighting drugs
I want to take a moment and talk about Recovery Friendly Workplaces which hit a milestone last month. Through this program, we utilize the support of the business community to create workplaces that become part of an individual's recovery. As of today
63 businesses, with over 40,000 employees, have signed up to join the initiative. We are taking whole new approaches to fighting addiction. Public sector, private sector, you name it. We have innovative solutions and the country is taking notice.

Given NH's opioid epidemic, a drug czar is a necessity
The [drug czar] position is funded by an appropriation from the Governor's Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention, Treatment and Recovery. At a news conference afterwards, Sununu said the position has been vacant for too long, given the
severity of the opioid epidemic. "This is an important position. It's vital, something everyone is clamoring for. It crosses party lines. It's just an absolute necessity for the state."
