Addiction: A Hidden Epidemic in the Workplace
How Employers Can Better Support Their Employees and Strengthen the Bottom Line 

Whether you work at a company with 50 employees or 5,000, you have colleagues impacted by alcohol or other drug addiction. Many employers believe that addiction doesn’t affect their business because they have a highly educated workforce or they drug test. With almost 10 percent of adults suffering from addiction, and at least three or four additional people impacted as loved ones, that’s simply not true.

In the Denver region, the estimated annual economic impact of addiction is $884 million. Employers bear the brunt of the costs.

In this guide, presented in partnership with Face It TOGETHER, you’ll learn:

  • How addiction impacts your workplace – and the cost of ignoring addiction
  • Six steps you can take as an employer to address the issue
  • How one company has found success in providing resources to its employees who are impacted by addiction
