5 Signs your Employee uses Drugs

11-26-2018 04:48 PM CET | Health & Medicine

Press release from: Pacific Bay Recovery

Employees are an organization’s most valuable asset and resource. If an employee is struggling with addiction, it can have a big impact on how your organization functions. Apart from costing you time and money, it may be counterproductive to the overall functioning of your organization.

This is why you should be aware of the signs of employee drug use within the organization. It will enable you to help an employee in distress as well as protect the reputation and efficiency of your company.

Signs of Employee Drug Use

People often go out of their way to hide their alcohol or drug use. But eventually, the signs of employee drug use would become evident. While there are a lot of signs of addiction and drug or alcohol abuse, here are a few common signs –

• change in work attendance and performance
• sudden, drastic changes in outward appearance, such as grooming issues
• irresponsible behavior like missing deadlines and being caustic with co-workers
• mood swings like hyperactivity or severe depression
• defensiveness when someone suggests that something is amiss

Addressing Employee Addiction Issues

Do not forget that you are dealing with an employee who is battling an illness. They may have chosen to begin taking drugs or alcohol, but when addiction takes over, people become helpless and can’t control the substance use any more.

While your first duty is to protect the company’s reputation, you also have a moral obligation to show compassion to the employee. Here are a few things you could do to address this issue–

• Get in touch with the employee’s friends and/or family to check whether they are aware of any issues
• If possible, offer a recommendation for getting help at a rehab or addiction treatment program
• offer time to obtain and pursue treatment
• provide privacy when addressing the issue
• consult the company’s insurance carrier about covering treatment costs

There are trusted rehabs, such as Pacific Bay recovery in San Diego, that offer complete addiction treatment services.
