Addiction in the Workplace

Beyond the Home and into the Workplace

Addiction is a serious mental health problem that affects not only personal lives but also workplaces, often damaging careers and affecting the safety and wellbeing of employees. If you have an employee struggling with substance abuse, problem gambling, problematic sexual behaviour or an eating disorder, then chances are your business is already experiencing one or more of these challenges:

  • Frequent absenteeism
  • Decreased productivity levels
  • Increased worker’s compensation and disability claims
  • Lower employee morale
  • Accidents and damages
  • Higher employee turnover
  • Damage to your organization’s reputation
  • Increased liability
  • Theft and fraud
