Stress, substance use issues, and suicidal thoughts plague millions of Americans and their families. Your companies employ these people. A recent Gallup poll shows that 18 percent of workers go home to addiction every day. The Hartford reports 76 percent of employers do not provide substance use disorders (SUD) training in the workplace. According to the National Council on Alcoholism & Drug Dependence (NCADD), addiction costs employers $81 billion annually due to increased health care costs, increased absenteeism, and workplace injuries, highlighting the need for a comprehensive solution for the workplace.
