Each workplace has its own challenges related to health and wellness. It is also affected by substance use problems to a different degree. These problems can put workers at risk, damage employee morale, harm the organization's public image, decrease productivity, and affect the bottom line.

Most people who misuse alcohol, prescription drugs, or illegal drugs are employed. Alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs and prescription drug misuse and abuse can have negative effects on both individual health and employment.

  • The 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (PDF | 7.6 MB) found that 68.9% of the estimated 22.4 million illicit drug users, ages 18 or older, are employed full or part time.
  • The same survey found that most binge drinkers and heavy alcohol users are also employed. Of adult binge drinkers, 79.3% (41.2 million people) are employed either full or part time. Of adult heavy drinkers, 76.1% (12.4 million people) are employed.
