The longer-term approach also affords the time needed to repair damaged family relationships, build new circles of support, assess financial damages, assess psychological issues, improve upon limited coping skills and break deeply ingrained habits. Integration of relapse prevention strategies and graduated return to work schedules are more effectively managed in extended primary treatment programs.
Substance Use in the Workplace
Employees with Substance Use
To ensure a safe workplace and align intentions and outcomes, Last Door provides workshops and seminars for Management Teams. Sessions teach teams to identify signs and symptoms of problematic substance use, and how to approach employee interventions. Presenters also provide education on topics such as fitness for work, workplace wellness best practices and return to work management programs.
Contact Last Door to inquire about a Workplace Wellness Webinar or Training Session to educate your team about Addiction and Mental Health Best Practices.
In most cases treatment costs are covered by insurance, employee health benefits or more innovatively by employer/employee agreements. Our care plans are flexible in terms of length of stay and return to work/transition planning. Our core treatment program has 35 years demonstrated success helping individuals and families overcome addiction.
