Fewer federal employees are addicted to opioids thanks to this Labor Department employee

Federal employees, no less than people in other occupations, sometimes have to deal with pain resulting from injuries. In recent years, many of them have become addicted to opioids. Thanks to the work of my next guest, over the past five years the number of federal employees using opioids has dropped by 58%. For his work, he’s a finalist in this year’s Service to America Medals program. Antonio Rios, the division director of Federal Employees’, Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation at the Department of Labor, talked with Federal Drive host Tom Temin.
