Infographic: Executive Alcohol and Drug Rehab

Using information and data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, this infographic illustrates the negative impact that alcohol and drug abuse by executives can have on not only the addict but the entire organization to which they belong. It makes the case that rehab can be a critical step for improving the life of the executive and the safety and productivity of the organization. Bar charts illustrate the negative impact that substance abuse has on both employee absenteeism and illness and injury rates. The infographic also points out that substance abuse in the workplace can lead to consequences such as product liability lawsuits and sexual harassment claims that can easily reach into the millions of dollars – far more than the cost of even the most expensive executive rehabs.
