Episode Info:

In this episode, I interview Don Hebert, Director of Recovery Services at the Center for Addiction Recovery Education and Success (CARES). Don shares some shocking statistics about addiction's impact on business, citing a the fact that the US Surgeon General reports that substance abuse costs the US Economy over $400 billion a year.

Don shares statistics that nearly 1 in 10 people in the work force are dependent on drugs and/or alcohol. The expense to companies associated in dealing with these employees in the form of treatment costs, lack of productivity and employees not showing up for work is astronomical. With a massive shortage of warehouse employees, manufacturer workers and truck drivers, company execs and managers cannot afford not to deal with this problem.

Don shares the huge benefits to companies that are taking this epidemic head on and points to practical things executives can put in place that can help employees recover and become healthy, hard working, loyal individuals that can change the entire culture of the organization.
