Why should you care?
Well, addiction costs business a lot of money.
It is estimated that the yearly economic impact of addiction in the US is over $442 billion dollars, with workplaces bearing a significant portion of those costs due to:
Absenteeism, increased healthcare expenses, theft and lost productivity.

Most people with an alcohol or drug addiction are employed
76% of illicit drug users are employed either full or part-time
