For Employers

According to the National Safety Council, nearly three-quarters of those struggling with addiction to alcohol, pain medication, marijuana and other substances are employed. Therefore, it is likely that employers will experience or have experienced, direct impact of substance use in the workplace. Examples of direct impact include misuse of substances at work, positive drug tests, complaints to HR, absenteeism, decreased productivity, injury, and/or overdose.

Interested in having Public Health present at your workplace? Contact Us!  

 

Employers are in a key position to recognize, help and stop substance misuse. If you are an employer—YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

  • Recognize how substance use impacts the bottom line. << Calculate your costs >> 
  • Enact strong company drug policies
  • Expand drug panel testing to include opioids but have a plan in place for employees who are on Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD). Individuals who are taking substances under the supervision of a licensed healthcare professional, in a MOUD program, and/or in recovery are protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 
  • Train supervisors and employees to spot the first signs of drug misuse
  • Treat substance abuse as a disease – e.g., Substance Use Disorders or Opioid Use Disorder
  • Leverage employee assistance programs to help employees return to work

AND REMEMBER – supporting recovery is good for business. Workers in recovery have lower turnover rates, are less likely to miss workdays, are less likely to be hospitalized and have fewer doctors’ visits than the general workforce. – National Safety Council

For Community, Business and Property Owners

Property Crime

If you witness a crime being committed, please call 911. If the crime has already occurred, contact your local police department to file a report. You may also call the non-emergency call center at 360-428-3211. 

Nuisance Properties

If there is a property near you that you are concerned about, contact Skagit County Public Health at 360-416-1500. The complaint will be forwarded to the Environmental Health division, entered in a database, and investigated. Please keep in mind that Public Health must stay within their code for enforcement and will refer complaints to other departments when appropriate. 

 

*If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911 or your local police department. 

Needles Found on Public or Private Property

Used needles left in a public or private place are not only a nuisance but also a public health/safety concern. While the risk is low, accidental needle pokes can result in the spread of communicable diseases such as hepatitis C, HIV, syphilis, and more. Thus, it is extremely important to teach children to never pick up needles found on the ground and to report them to a trusted adult. Found needles can be safely disposed of using protective equipment and procedures. 

 

While Skagit County litter crews, law enforcement and park rangers are doing what they can to keep our community clean, they can’t be everywhere. Therefore, Skagit County Public Health launched a Pilot Needle Pickup Program which consists of free clean-up kits that are available to anyone in the community. Kits include safety glasses, gloves, a needle pickup tool and a sharps container.

needle-cleanup-kits

Interested individuals can come by and pick up a kit from Public Health’s downtown office: 700 South 2nd Street, Room 301, Mount Vernon. When a sharps container is full, it can be returned to Public Health for disposal. 

For Providers & Prescribers

Medical and behavioral healthcare providers and prescribers are key partners in addressing the opioid epidemic in Skagit County. From initial intake screening to follow-up appointments, and even into recovery—they manage it all.  

 

If you are a medical or behavioral healthcare provider/prescriber, below are some resources that may help you and your colleagues stay up to date with new guidelines and best practices:
