About the Indiana Employer Opioid Summit

The Wellness Council of Indiana is excited to announce the 2020 Indiana Employer Opioid Summit is still on, but with a twist – it is now a virtual summit! With the safety of our attendees, sponsors, speakers and staff in mind, we are moving to a virtual format.

The Indiana Employer Opioid Summit is focused on engaging the corporate community in education and discussion on the issue of workplace substance misuse. Presented by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and the Wellness Council of Indiana, attendees at the September 16 event will learn cutting edge strategies for retaining workers, see examples of innovation from other Indiana business leaders and build connections between employers and the treatment and recovery communities.

  • $250 for Indiana Chamber of Commerce members
  • $150 for governmental and not-for-profit individuals
