Four-Star Gen. Barry McCaffrey, Former US Drug Czar, To Report "Drugs In The Workplace -- Understated National Crisis" At Teamsters Health & Benefits Forum Fri., Nov. 8, 10:30 AM At NYC Grand Hyatt
Date:11/1/2013

y of service providers from across the country. Among its activities, the Fund's employee assistance program provides advice and referral to members seeking treatment for substance abuse and mental health issues for themselves or their dependents.  The Health and Benefits Expo includes a variety of unions – Teamsters, Carpenters, Excavators, and others. Over a million covered lives will be represented.

The attendees and exhibitors provide varied assistance to workers and their families—health insurance, legal offices, food and commercial, teachers, vision, dental, hospital services, actuarial, medical, pensions, prescriptions, and other services.

General McCaffrey said that with the Affordable Care Act and new parity requirements for mental health and substance abuse services to equal physical health benefits, "Now everyone will be fighting for you far more than before. I stand with you wanting the best benefits.  Congratulations to the unions and the providers who are fighting for good benefits for members.  The country will come out better."

McCaffrey added, "For 19-25 year-olds, Andy told me that the most used benefit his program provides is substance abuse rehabilitation.  This amazing fact shows how important what you are doing is to start people out right.  Our future is dependent on the success of your program.  You are at the heart and soul of improving the character and productivity of the nation."

General McCaffrey is being hosted at the Expo by CRC Health Group, the country's largest substance abuse and behavioral services treatment provider, where McCaffrey is senior advisor.
