The Massachusetts Communication and Awareness around Recovery and Employer Support program (Mass C.A.R.E.S.) was created in response to a report issued from the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation last year that highlighted the significant economic and fiscal impact the opioid crisis is having on the Commonwealth. The report, The Opioid Epidemic: An issue of Substance, made it clear that employers play a critical role in a solution to this crisis. Mass. C.A.R.E.S. will provide participating employers with information, tools and support they may need to get involved.
