CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY IN THE WORKPLACE
Chemical dependency effects an estimated 67 million Americans and has been deemed a national epidemic.1 Despite the movement to destigmatize chemical dependency and encourage recovery, many employees are still fearful that they will lose their job or be discriminated against if they seek help.
75% of people with SUD in the United States are in the workforce.1 Chemical dependency treatment is an investment for employers and employees, not an expense. Employees in recovery are more productive, have less absenteeism, and save employers costs in recruiting and training, saving an average of $3,219.1
The average salary for the Permian Basin is approximately $49,475 – $59,181.2 According to the National Institute of Health, the average cost for recruiting and training replacement workers is 21% of an employee’s annual salary.1 These costs include:
- Talent searches and recruitment
- Onboarding a new employee
- Training costs
- Lost productivity—it may take a new employee one to two years to reach the productivity of an existing person.
- Lost engagement—other employees who see high turnover rates tend to disengage and lose productivity.
- Cultural impact—turnover changes organizational culture
