According to research by the American Psychiatric Association, nearly a third of all Americans say they know someone who is or has been addicted to opioids or prescription painkillers. In the latest episode of “Vorys at Work,” Jackie Ford talks with Vorys health care lawyer and registered nurse Robin Amicon about the pharmacology of opioid addiction and about testing, training, and accommodation issues for employers dealing with opioid-related issues.
