Drug Addiction & Mental Health in the Workplace: Truths & Solutions
Seventy-five percent of those struggling with addiction to alcohol, pain medication, marijuana, and other substances are employed, according to the National Safety Council. Workers with substance use disorders miss nearly 50% more work days than their peers – up to six weeks annually – and absenteeism leads to losses in productivity.
