Alcohol and Substance Use Toolkit
Alcoholism in the workplace is a huge financial burden for companies. In fact, companies across the nation spend anywhere between $33 billion and $68 billion annually due to employee alcohol abuse. This figure includes absenteeism, health complications, on-the-job injuries, and other losses in productivity. When an employee struggles with alcohol use, it affects not only the individual but also those around them – supervisors, coworkers, and project team members.
