Most addictions take a high personal toll on employees, and the expense to employers can be staggering. Absenteeism, lost productivity, accidents, turnover, recruitment, and training are only a few of the costs organizations bear if substance abuse is not identified and treated. This workshop will introduce the use and abuse dependency continuum, discuss contributing factors to substance abuse, and identify resources participants can use to assist and support an addicted employee.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to do the following:
- Recognize the signs and symptoms of substance abuse impacting job performance.
- Understand the organizational costs of ignoring an employee’s addiction.
- Develop and plan the most appropriate corrective course of action.
