Program: The LifeHouse Recovery

Opioid addiction is our nation’s leading public health crisis, and it affects people across all socioeconomic classes, races, genders and jobs. The home building industry is no exception.

Get the facts:

  • Overdoses left more than 107,000 Americans dead in 2021, an all-time high.
  • Of the more than 93,000 Americans who died from drug-involved overdoses in 2020, nearly 70,000 died from opioid-involved overdoses driven by a proliferation of fentanyl.
  • Around 15% of all construction workers in the United States have a substance abuse disorder compared to 8.6% of the general population of adults.
  • Construction workers represent about 25% of fatal opioid overdoses among all workers.
  • Opioid addiction often begins after being prescribed the drugs after an injury.

The impact on a business can be significant and includes loss of productivity, healthcare expenses, absenteeism, turnover and much more.
