Mindfulness in the Workplace: An Introduction

This LMS module introduces evidence-based mindfulness practice for the workplace. When left unaddressed, exposure to chronic stress leads to an increased risk for chronic disease, job dissatisfaction, burnout, and turnover. As an employee, you may not always be able to control the factors that contribute to stress in your environment. What you can control is your response to that stress. The following modules offer basic education on how mindfulness-based practices can help mitigate our exposure to chronic stress throughout the workday.

Prevention Activities Guidance

According to SAMHSA, “prevention activities work to educate and support individuals and communities to prevent the use and misuse of drugs and the development of substance use disorders.” As individuals use substances, the possibility of becoming addicted increases, as does the occurrence of other negative health consequences. Therefore, preventing substance misuse before it begins is vital to the health of individuals, families, and communities. 

Evidence-based prevention programs work, and this guidance module will share strategies to:

  • Prevent overdoses
  • Implement year-round drug take-back programs
  • Increase and support the use of evidence-based, school- and community-based prevention programs
  • Identify and screen individuals at risk for substance use disorder and opioid use disorder, and provide or make referrals to appropriate support services

Treatment Activities Guidance

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health reports that 1 percent of the adult population (approximately 2.1 million of those 12 years and older) needs treatment for an OUD. Gaps persist between the demand for treatment and the access to and availability of treatment for OUD.  Proven treatment strategies such as medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) play a key role in transitioning individuals to long-term recovery by addressing the chronic nature of OUD.  Connecting individuals and families to these treatment services is a critical RCORP activity. 

This guidance module covers:

  • Strategies to recruit, train, and mentor interdisciplinary teams to provide MOUD 
  • Strategies to increase the number of providers and other health and social service professionals who can identify and treat SUD and OUD
  • Barriers to integrated treatment and ways to reduce them
  • Typical elements in models of care
  • Models of care for integrated behavioral health and MAT/MOUD

Recovery Activities Guidance

Developing a strategy to support individuals in or seeking recovery from substance use disorders is an important component of overall service offerings. Recovery refers to the ongoing process of change and improved health outcomes as an individual explores their relationship with drugs and alcohol. By supporting individuals in obtaining and sustaining recovery, you will be providing a direct, positive impact within your community.

This guidance module covers strategies to:

  • Enhance discharge coordination for people leaving inpatient treatment facilities or the criminal justice system
