We Can Help You Help Your Employees
We appreciate you taking the time to learn more about us. The fact that you’re here may well be a sign that you have an employee or employee’s family member caught in the grasp of addiction to alcohol, drugs or gambling. We are here to help.
Impact in the Workplace
Substance abuse and problem gambling in the workplace can have devastating results. The can cause unhealthy employees, unsafe working conditions, loss of productivity, smaller profits, more accidents, higher medical claims expenses, and a host of other negative effects. Small and medium-sized firms who employ 80% of the U.S. workforce typically do not have drug testing policies and programs in place.
The costs to you, as an employer, could be staggering – both financially and in the loss of good employees and friends. Undoubtedly, you’ve at least heard of some of impact on businesses related to addiction in the workplace:
- Nearly 77% of illegal drug users are employed in full and part-time jobs.
- Alcohol and drug abuse cost American businesses roughly $81 billion dollars in lost productivity in just one year. (source)
- Absenteeism, increased health care costs and decreased productivity due to alcohol and other substance abuse costs companies $1,000 per employee per year.
Creating a Substance and Gambling-Free Workplace
Our professional Outreach team will be happy to direct you to the most appropriate resources or customize a complimentary workplace training that fits your unique needs.
If you do not already have one, we encourage you to implement a workplace policy about substance use and gambling activities in the workplace. Encourage employees to reach out to receive help if they feel they have a problem or someone they love has a problem.
Keep in mind, too, that employee absenteeism, work-site distraction, lost productivity and even negative morale issues can be signs of addictions within the family, not necessarily the employee. Addiction is a family disease. Having resources of hope to share with your employee for their loved ones is every bit as important to your business as if the addicted person was your employee.
