Supporting Employers – Workplace Substance Abuse Programs 

Substance abuse is a dilemma in the workplace that can adversely affect all those connected to the troubled employee.

Many factors can also impact a company’s bottom line: lost productivity, lateness, absenteeism, liability, disruptive behaviors and more.

For employers who have invested thousands of dollars in recruiting and training good people, it just makes good business sense to assist troubled employees.

Addiction in the Workplace

Drug & Alcohol Training for a Drug Free Workplace

Alcohol and substance abuse are major cost drivers for all businesses.

The substance abuse epidemic that currently affects one-in-four Pennsylvania households is also a dilemma in the workplace.

Employer Support Services

Livengrin specializes in helping a business take action that can assist troubled employees, minimize risks to the company, and help them save money.

There is a strong case for all businesses to take a proactive position to substance abuse prevention through a specific plan and policy:

  • A business has a legal responsibility to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of its personnel, as far as reasonably practical.
  • Knowingly allowing someone to continue working while under the influence places that person and others at risk, and potentially leaves a firm open to legal liability.

Livengrin delivers programs to corporations and unions on the following topics:

  • Drug free workplace training
  • Drug abuse prevention counseling
  • Drug/alcohol training for supervisors

Combating On-the-Job Dependency

Here are the two major steps a company can take to deal with the challenge of employee addiction.

The first step is a straightforward written policy that deals with alcohol/drug problems at work. It does not need to be long or complicated, but should cover:

  • Reason: Why enact the policy? To whom does it apply?
  • Rules: Expectations for employees’ behavior that ensure that alcohol/drugs do not affect work or safety.
  • Help: Support and information is available to employees concerning alcohol/drug abuse.
  • Confidentiality: Assurance that privacy will be maintained about workers’ records and treatment.
  • Disciplinary Action: Circumstances in which the company will act punitively.

As for taking action with an employee, the best second step is to contact Livengrin.

Support: A smart business will want to do what it can to help a colleague troubled by addiction.

Treatment: The investment in employee training, time, and compensation warrants pursuing addiction treatment.

Key Step: Codify your business’s policy toward alcohol/drug problems at work.

On-Location Education

Addiction is costing your business every day. Liability, lost productivity, employee turnover, are just few of the problems businesses face. Many companies and workplaces have cultures where drinking (and sometimes drugs) are a large part of the bonding experience. Livengrin has been working with employers and major unions to help keep your workers safe, sober and productive, yet not allow management to lose credibility with their employees.
