Doing the right thing also happens to be the right thing for business. Imagine: you can help employees and their families. You can foster a community of recovery. And all the while, you can bolster your bottom line.
Employers are Part of the Solution
About 50 percent of people with an alcohol or drug problem are employed full-time, yet only a fraction will ever get help. Research shows that these alcohol and drug problems have a big impact on an employer’s bottom line.
At the same time, companies nationwide are grappling with how they can help their employees better manage chronic disease—in part due to healthcare reform and other changes.
Addiction should be understood and treated like any other chronic disease. Face It TOGETHER's Employer's Initiative gives employers the tools to help their employees while increasing productivity and better managing costs related to this illness.
When you support recovery efforts in the workplace, you invest in your workforce, help families and boost your bottom line.
How Face It TOGETHER®
Face It TOGETHER helps communities by identifying potential local employer partners, fostering collaboration and providing worksite programming to promote and support recovery.
We use value propositions to show that private sector investment in recovery makes good economic sense. By integrating addiction into their chronic disease management programs, employers not only encourage healthier employees and families, but also respond strategically to the growing demands of healthcare reform.
