Chemical Dependency In The Workplace
An estimated 75 percent of people who suffer with alcohol or drug addiction issues currently hold down a job in the United States within any given year. Over time, employees battling addiction begin to exhibit certain behaviors or patterns in the workplace. Some of the most common behaviors observed include: frequent tardy incidents, missed work days and drops in productivity. Many are also more likely to be involved in a workplace accident, more likely to file a workers’ compensation claim and undergo frequent job changes.
Cost Of Chemical Dependency In The Workplace
Alcohol and drug addictions cost employers an estimated $276 billion within any given year, according to the National Business Group on Health. These costs equal more than the combined costs of treating cancer and diabetes conditions. Employer-related costs from the effects of addiction include: lost business earnings due to reduced work productivity, criminal behaviors such as stealing supplies or money, an increased number of medical claim filings and an increased number of workers’ compensation claim filings. WASAP has been proven to assist worker productivity, and decrease absenteeism and accident rates in the workplace by offering the following services to your employees: confidential drug and alcohol dependency assessment, dual diagnosis inpatient and outpatient care, life coaching, life skills workshops, individually tailored treatment programs and continued care for sustained recovery.
