There is often a disconnect between employees and employers when it comes to needing assistance with substance use. The stigma involved creates a barrier that blocks the employee from reaching out and finding help.

Luckily, there is a confidential program that exists so employers can help not only their employees, but their employee’s families as well.

In this episode, Lorne Curry invites Elliot Stone, CEO and co-founder of ALAViDa onto the show. Lorne and Elliot speak about the ALAViDA program and how it works to assist employers and employees.

  • How ALAViDA provides virtual care for all substances
  • How the ALAViDA program works
  • Using ALAViDA with employee assistance programs
  • Challenges that companies face in changing their approach to substance use
  • And more
