Employees often have strict substance abuse policies to follow. If you fail a drug test, you could be suspended or worse, lose your job without any unemployment benefits. Addiction in the workplace is more common than you think and there are numerous negative effects this can have for all employees involved.
This may be the reason why you’re afraid to tell anyone you work with that you have a drug and/or alcohol addiction. Just the idea of a random drug test makes you cringe and stress, which causes you to use more drugs, and the cycle continues. You may even have friends ready to help with a urine sample or you have a bottle of “easy clean” in your car just in case you get that call.
It’s important to stop living in fear. Our Northeast addictions treatment center understands addiction in the workplace. If you have a drug and/or alcohol addiction, get the help you need now at our employee rehab center here at Clearbrook Treatment Centers. We are here to help you overcome addiction and return to everyday life with job security.
Getting Help Means Keeping Your Job
According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, those who use illegal drugs are not protected under law; however, if you are receiving treatment for your drug addiction or have been rehabilitated successfully, you are protected by the ADA from discrimination on the basis of past drug addiction.1 This means that if you seek help for your drug and/or alcohol problem, the state agency you work for cannot fire you unless you begin using drugs or alcohol again. Asking for help is how your life will become better, not worse. Seeking professional addiction treatment will be the best decision you can ever make for your career and even your life.
Getting the Tools You Need To Stay Sober
Clearbrook offers a 28-day inpatient drug and alcohol rehab for all state employees. After completing a medical detox, which will dampen the effects of withdrawal, we will provide you with a detailed drug rehabilitation program that includes one-on-one counseling sessions, group therapy, and programs that will give you the tools you need to regain a healthy lifestyle. And once you are ready to leave our employee rehab, we will provide you with the necessary aftercare programs you need to stay on the road to recovery and avoid future relapses.
In addition, Clearbrook Treatment Centers offer a family education program that helps your family and loved ones understand what you are going through and teaches them how to help you recover.
