Employment Stress and Alcohol / Substance abuse

Employment Stress and Alcohol / Substance Abuse

There are many people in the workforce or academics that may seem to be “high functioning” despite the stresses or pressure they feel and the way they are coping with it. Little do many know; their coping mechanism is with the abuse of alcohol or drugs. You may not be the classic picture of an alcoholic or addict, but the prolonged drinking and substance use that used to be a relief, has now become a reliance. This cycle of self-medicating for heightened levels of anxiety and stress from work or school often traps the drinker or user in an addictive lifestyle. The clinical team and staff at WeCare can offer a stress free environment where treatment can provide coping mechanisms and tools to bring new behaviors to the workforce, school and life.
