Drug and alcohol addiction can devastate the lives of everyone and everything it comes in contact with. Not only does it affect the addict but often times, friends, family and co-workers pay the price for the addict’s behavior. For employers, this price tag can be a hefty one, thanks to on-the-job injuries, lost productivity, absenteeism and other factors.
Join Lori McCarthy (Clinical Outreach Representative at Gosnold) and Phil Quinn (EAP at South Shore Mental Health) for a discussion on how to identify and deal with addiction in the workplace. This lunch and learn will provide you with information on addiction education, the resources and referral sources available to you, as well as treatment and intervention options.
As an employer, it is not always easy to spot these signs and know what the right thing is to do. You will walk away from this seminar with a better understanding of what signs to look for, when to intervene and who to call for help if you cannot give the employee the assistance he/she needs.
