2:00 PM EDT - 3:30 PM EDT


Online via Zoom Webinar Platform


There are thousands of people in recovery from addiction unaware of their civil rights under the ADA. The ADA insures that people with addiction to alcohol, and in recovery from opioids and other drugs have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. Find out how the ADA addresses alcohol and substance use disorders differently. This session will also introduce how the ADA applies to addiction in three phases of employment: pre-offer, post-offer, and employment. These differences will be illustrated with scenarios about alcohol, opioids, cocaine, and marijuana.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the ADA’s definition of disability and how it applies to addiction and recovery.
  • Distinguish how the ADA applies to people with addiction to alcohol and those in recovery from opioids and other drugs.
  • Learn which protections the ADA provides in access to employment, state and local government services, and places of public accommodations

Who is encouraged to attend? Clinicians, providers, administrators, and leadership are highly encouraged to participate to learn more about ADA protection rights.
