Kick your opioid habit before it kicks you

The opioid epidemic that has swept across our nation threatens the lives of people in Pennsylvania and across the country. Business owners in all industries have expressed concern about the threat and the impact it could have on their profits. Sadly, if you are a victim of opioid addiction, you will likely have more pressing concerns than profits. Along with jeopardizing your job, opioid addiction can threaten your life as well.

How will your family cope if you are debilitated by a work injury?

As a member of the Pennsylvania workforce, you might be concerned about the welfare of your family should you suffer serious injuries in an on-the-job accident. Even with workers' compensation insurance coverage, your fears are not without ground because there can be many pitfalls in navigating a benefits claim. Knowing your rights may prepare you for such an event.

A continual flow of tourists share state roadways with full-time residents on a daily basis. This state has so much to offer that the tourist season typically extends throughout the year. From those who drive long distances hoping to see the perfect autumn foliage to those with season tickets to Pirate baseball games, out-of-state visitors seem to have no problem filling their itineraries.

If you suffer soft tissue or musculoskeletal injuries, you may find that your body will quickly build up a tolerance to opioids, which makes them highly addictive.
