Webinar Description

This presentation will review various wellness-related factors that can address issues behind four classes of prescription drugs: opioids for pain; stimulants for energy, weight loss, and attention; sedatives for relaxation; and tranquilizers for anxiety, tension, and stress.

This interactive webinar will review data and findings showing that prescription drugs are a growing concern in both society and the workforce. Fortunately, wellness providers already have access to tools and knowledge that can be applied to this growing problem, whether you are a provider of community health services, workplace, healthcare, higher education, or wellness coaching.

The speaker will also discuss a five-phase process of enhancing health consciousness as a potentially universal model or theory that can serve as a guide for translating wellness wisdom to address the prescription drug problem. Participants will review recent data on the problem of prescription drug misuse within the workforce and beyond, learn tools and tips they can use with clients, and receive guidance on steps they can take to address the epidemic.

Objectives

Following this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • describe risk and protective factors associated with prescription drug misuse.
  • explain the role wellness plays.
  • identify steps for building health consciousness.
