Addiction in the Workplace

Many employers work hard to provide their employees with a supportive environment when it comes to Mental Health and Wellness. Having programs in place for employees that suffer from Mental Health Challenges, including substance abuse, are beneficial for all parties involved.

For employers, this price tag can be a large one, due to on-the-job injuries, lost productivity, absenteeism and other factors.

Signs of Substance Abuse in the Workplace

  • Frequent, prolonged, and often unexplained absences
  • Involvement in accidents both on and off the job
  • Erratic work patterns and reduced productivity
  • Indifference to personal hygiene
  • Overreaction to real or imagined criticism
  • Such overt physical signs as exhaustion or hyperactivity, dilated pupils, slurred speech, or an unsteady walk

Why Help?

Some ask why help and not simply dismiss. Beyond the fact that addiction is considered a disability and an illness and thus an employer cannot simply terminate the worker’s employment there is the financial gain that can occur. It is far more costly to terminate an employee than to rehabilitate them. Employees who successfully complete rehabilitation tend to have far fewer performance issues than those who had never had an addiction concern or sought help through the Employee Assistance Program for other related personal issues.
