Ignoring an employee’s alcohol and drug problem will eventually impact the bottom line of an organisation.  Many employees are experiencing major negative life consequences from their substance use and a large number of employees are affected by another’s addiction.

How does substance abuse cost you and your business?

Substance abuse in the workplace is a serious liability for your business. Some of the problems that arise include:

  • Increased absenteeism
  • Increased staff turnover
  • Increased accidents
  • Decreased productivity

Employers are becoming increasingly concerned about the adverse impact that substance abuse can have on the overall efficiency of their organisations. This heightened awareness of substance abuse is reflected in a real and growing concern for the health, safety and environmental problems caused by impaired employees.

Some of the addictions include:

  • Smoking
  • Gambling
  • Drug and alcohol abuse

The topics covered in the one-hour awareness sessions include:

  • Psychological or stress-related effects of alcohol or drug abuse of a family member, friend or colleague
  • Dealing with addictions in the workplace

These informative sessions will be supplemented with individual support to those employees of the company who need assistance
