Part of a complete substance abuse treatment program for a community is not only to do direct individual and group counseling as well as psychiatric medication, but preventative services. Sometimes this is presentations for communities at a library or school, but one often neglected area is in the workplace.

Did you know:

  • 59 million adults struggle with binge drinking every month?
  • $78,000,000,000 is spent because of substance misuse.
  • The workplace is the perfect place to help employees and their families with prevention and recovery through insurance, respite, and treatment supports.

If you want a copy of the handout we made for businesses and ministries to give out, you can download and print your own off here. We encourage you to take 15 minutes of the next staff meeting to talk about this as a reminder. Hang these up in your break room. Even encourage your leadership look into alternative supports to promote a drug free workplace with prevention and recovery programs.
