Why Should Employers Care about Substance Use Disorder (SUD)?
Increased healthcare expenses for employees and family members
Higher rates of absenteeism
Decreased job productivity and performance
Stress, mental health issues and financial toxicity for families
Most people with SUD don't receive adequate treatment - and sometimes this is because they and/or their family members aren't well educated about the issue.
