Substance Use and Mental Health in BC Construction Industry
Construction workers account for a disproportionate number of overdose deaths. Through the pandemic, the opioid crisis has further worsened. The Construction Industry Rehabilitation Plan (CIRP) is a union and employer funded organization dedicated to providing treatment for substance use and related mental health issues.
CIRP is in the process of reviewing its programs to ensure that they best meet the needs of BC construction workers and their families. The starting point of this review process is getting a better understanding of the size of the substance use problem in the construction industry, within both union and non-unionized sectors.
