Successful Workers Living the ‘Double Life’
Highly productive and successful workers have lots of responsibilities and work long hours. Many workers suffer from stress, exhaustion, and/or burnout. Many turn to stimulants, sedatives, or alcohol for relaxation or functionality. Some are skilled at living a compartmentalized life, separating work and family from their alcohol or drug life. They may even appear as if they are managing life quite well. It can serve families, colleagues or employers to turn a “blind eye” to substance users who are productive and highly functional. But one day, it catches up, sometimes when one hits bottom.
One in 10 employees in the U.S. have an alcohol problem and 1 in 3 employees are involved with some sort of illegal drug use. Employees with alcohol and drug problems profoundly impact the morale and productivity of the organization where they work. Drug Screening in the workplace has become quite common. A positive drug test can lead to dismissal and the beginning of one’s life unraveling and spinning out-of-control.
