Substance Use, Misuse and Relapse in the Addictions Treatment Workforce: Issues and Solutions


Jonas Eisenstadt (Editor)

Series: Substance Abuse Assessment, Interventions and Treatment
BISAC: PSY038000

Like all professions, the addictions treatment field is faced with the challenges of employee substance use and abuse and their impact on retention of quality staff. Because the addictions field employs a disproportionate number of individuals – by recent estimates close to half of the treatment workforce – in recovery, the field faces particular retention challenges. This book provides meaningful and practical guidance to the problem of substance misuse among addictions professionals.

The treatment field presents a professional environment where triggers for relapse are present. The ability to support employees through prevention and intervention and with access to treatment and recovery support services is critical to retaining a workforce that can bring richness and personal experience to the workplace, while maintaining its dedication to providing quality services to its clients.
