One of the realities of alcohol and drug misuse is that it doesn't just affect the individual and their family; it can also have a significant impact on employers and work-colleagues too.
Indeed, in a recent survey 27% of employers said that drug misuse is a problem at work whilst a staggering 60% say they have experienced problems due to staff drinking alcohol.
In many instances, alcohol or drug misuse is related to problems or stresses at work and supporting - rather than disciplining - employees with a problem makes good business sense. In addition, apart from the business benefits of supporting employees with alcohol or drug problems, employers also have a moral duty to protect employee welfare and well-being.
Phoenix Programmes' Screening & Assessment service offers a simple way for employers to help employees who they believe might have a problem.
One of our expert therapists will conduct a thorough assessment to identify whether or not an employee has a problem with drug or alcohol use and, if so, what solutions and strategies the employer can put in place to address the issue.
For reasons of confidentiality, assessments are usually conducted at our San Pedro practice, although they can also be delivered at the employer's business premises if required.
