ICARE CFAA – More Information
You have the needs. We have the solutions.
Substance misuse costs the US Economy $740 billion annually. Businesses and communities bear this cost in lost productivity, absenteeism, turnover, accidents, theft, healthcare, insurance and compliance costs.

Over 70% of illicit users are in full or part-time employment and most users don’t seek help for their problem leading to suffering in families and communities – the main reason for this silence is STIGMA.

Yet, addiction is preventable and treatable.

The missing piece surrounding addiction is a safe and proactive conversation.
Learn how you can become an ICARE Certified Addiction Awareness Facilitator and have IMMEDIATE and POSITIVE IMPACT in your workplace or community.
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Awareness and Health Education are proven Universal / Primary Prevention strategies. Such strategies are the most cost effective and have the greatest impact on reducing specific health problems across people in a defined population. Effective Awareness efforts reduce risk factors and promote protective factors which strengthen individual knowledge, skills and attitudes.

The missing piece in prevention efforts for substance misuse has been an effective strategy to reach a broad Adult population in both community and workplace settings. Current prevention funding is targeted for children/ youth or for specific substances.
