Drug-Free Workplaces: Cost-Effective Ways To Help Employees
Do you have employees with substance abuse problems? Want to help them, but don’t think you have the financial resources and aren’t sure where to start? SAMHSA is here to help.
Fourteen two-page informational briefs are now available for employers. They outline the benefits—including financial—of helping employees receive treatment for substance abuse.
“These timely materials show that substance abuse treatment benefits under employee health plans can actually save them money while boosting employees’ health and productivity,” said H. Westley Clark, M.D., J.D., M.P.H., Director of SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment.
“This can help employers make informed decisions while they are considering changes related to the Wellstone/Domenici Mental Health and Addictions Parity Act of 2008,” Dr. Clark added. For information on parity, see SAMHSA News online, November/December 2008.
The briefs include quick facts, definitions, and helpful links.
