Drug and alcohol use, whether recreational or problematic, can have a huge impact on businesses. Employee wellbeing and safety can be compromised whilst an employee is under the influence, suffering from the after effects or in need of substances. Drugs and alcohol use can also have a huge impact on productivity;
In 2012 a report from the National Treatment Agency claims that the cost to industry from illegal drug use is £800 million each year. Furthermore, the Government’s “Alcohol Harm Reduction Strategy for England” (Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit) says that “alcohol misuse among employees costs up to £6.4 billion in lost productivity.
