Connecticut's opioid crisis seems to make headlines daily these days. Whether it's calls for more government intervention or another tragic story of a life cut short from a deadly overdose, the public's attention to the dangers of addiction to painkillers and similar drugs is at an all-time high.

Increasingly, too, employers are being impacted by the opioid crisis, which is why Hartford Business Journal is kicking off a month-long series — "Opioids in the Workplace" — that will detail how the drug epidemic is impacting companies and their workers. This week we'll introduce the series and look at how the addiction recovery industry is responding to the crisis. In future editions we'll explore issues surrounding drug-testing policies, employee assistance programs and insurance, and share some personal tales of recovery. P. 12.
