Coping With Addiction in the Workplace & Community - 11/24/2020
Co-hosted by Woodbridge Metro Chamber of Commerce
Almost 21 million Americans have at least one addiction, yet only 10% of them receive treatment. Drug overdose deaths have more than tripled since 1990.
Contrary to popular belief, most Americans struggling with a substance use disorder continue to hold down a job. According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD), more than 70 percent of those abusing illicit drugs in America are employed, as are most binge drinkers. The most common illicit drugs abused on the job are marijuana and cocaine.
Drug abuse and addiction cost American companies $81 billion every year. Learn what you can do in your workplace and community to help combat this.
