About FIT @ Work

About 70% of those with addiction go to work. But only one in 10 will get help – often due to shame and fear, driving tremendous costs in the workplace.

Offer peer coaching as a mental health benefit to your employees and their loved ones.

  • Make it easy for your employees and their family members to access high quality and convenient support.
  • Improve productivity, manage risk and reduce costs related to addiction.
  • See results that deliver a proven ROI for your company.

Addiction wellness at work

“Having my employer walk beside me, they have helped raise me up from that dark pit," said Becky, a coaching member. "One thing that I didn’t have to worry about was if I was going to have my job or not when I came back from treatment.”

The costs to employers

Seven in 10 employers experience issues associated with prescription drug misuse, such as employee absenteeism, decreased job performance and injury. The odds of accidentally dying from an opioid overdose are now greater than the odds of dying in a car accident.

According to the National Safety Council, employers can save an average of $8,500 for supporting each employee in recovery from addiction. See the costs of addiction to your business with the National Safety Council's Substance Use Employer Cost Calculator.
