New Mexico Businesses Can Make a Difference
Lorie Guthrie founded Recovery Friendly Workplaces of NM is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization working to recruit businesses to hire people after completion of a recovery program.
Businesses will provide flexibility for employees to continue getting support to maintain their recovery. This is a win-win! Businesses get productive employees, reduce turn-over and training costs. People who have put the work into completing a recovery program will have a workplace that supports them by allowing them to be truthful about their addiction and give them some flexibility to get the support they need to maintain their recovery while rebuilding a productive life.
