Addiction Recovery Services
Many people think that persons with alcohol and other drug problems are unemployed and that pre-employment drug screens ensure that persons using illegal drugs will not be hired. Would it surprise you to know that:
- 64.3% of persons reporting illegal drug use are employed, full time
- An estimated 8.8 percent, or 10.1 million, of full-time workers reported heavy alcohol use in the past month (If your company employs 200 people, that would be nearly 18 employees reporting heavy alcphol use in the past 30 days!)
- An estimated 6.4 percent, or 7.3 million, of full-time workers reported the use of marijuana during the past month
Addiction Recovery Services can help your business develop and maintain an effective Drug Free Workplace Program. By working strategically in a very competitive economical environment, you can reduce the expense of absenteeism and injuries, lower the number of health insurance claims, prevent the loss of productivity and employee morale, and reduce theft and fatalities in the workplace.
