Addiction Training 360: Enhance Workplace Well-Being Today!

Diverse group actively participating in an addiction training seminar led by Shawn Rumble Recovery Services, gaining insights on addiction support.

In today’s fast-paced corporate world, the well-being of employees is not just a perk—it’s a strategic imperative. One often-overlooked facet of employee health is addiction and mental wellness. The need for specialized addiction training in the workplace is backed by compelling data. For instance, a Canadian study revealed that substance abuse led to a staggering $15.7 billion loss in workplace productivity in 2014. Similarly, a 2019 U.S. SAMHSA study showed that 74.4% of adults struggling with substance use disorders are in the workforce. These alarming statistics highlight the urgent need for effective addiction training programs in the corporate setting.

Customized Content: A Client-Centric Strategy

Every company has its distinct culture, challenges, and objectives. A one-size-fits-all solution is ineffective for addressing the complex issue of addiction. That’s why my addiction training programs are designed with your organization at the forefront.

The Power of Comprehensive Addiction Training

Investing in comprehensive addiction training yields long-term benefits:

  • Early Detection: Timely intervention is crucial for effective addiction treatment. A study published in 2021 in the journal “Current Opinion in Behavioral Sciences” emphasizes that a longitudinal and multidimensional examination of value-based processes can provide a more complete understanding of addiction and aid in developing better-tailored and timed interventions
  • Reducing Stigma: The World Health Organization emphasizes the need for a stigma-free culture in mental health and addiction. A 2021 study in ‘Drug and Alcohol Review‘ found that reducing stigma significantly impacts treatment effectiveness.
  • Employees who receive adequate support are more productive and committed. A 2019 study in the “International Journal of Productivity and Performance Management” found that job satisfaction and organizational commitment have a significant effect on employee performance.

A Holistic, Science-Backed Approach to Addictions

My course content covers a wide range of addictive behaviors and offers diverse solutions, including:

  • 12-Step Program Facilitation: A globally recognized tool for addiction recovery.
  • Strategic Harm Reduction: Empowering organizations to minimize addiction’s negative impact.

Specialized Expertise: Addressing less visible but impactful behavioral addictions like gaming and shopping is crucial. A study published in 2018 in the journal “Frontiers in Psychiatry” found that gaming addicts have poorer response-inhibition and emotion regulation, impaired prefrontal cortex functioning, and cognitive control, similar to those found in individuals with substance-related addictions.

Addiction impacts families as well. Our programs offer strategies and support for both employees and their families, fostering resilience and mutual understanding.
