Recovery Works for Business
It’s estimated that more than 20 million Americans suffer from addiction, or about one in every 10 adults in Wisconsin. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, approximately 75% of those battling addiction go to work. The cost of addiction to an employer’s bottom line is significant and results in higher absenteeism, higher health care costs, higher turnover and greater likelihood of work-related safety incidents.
