Like many other people struggling with an addiction, your employee may not be seeking help because he or she is denying there’s a problem. You can provide much-needed encouragement to get treatment by staging an intervention that includes management, co-workers, and your employee’s family members and friends.
What is an intervention?
An intervention is a respectful and caring process where a trained counsellor guides you and your fellow interveners as you confront and try to motivate your employee to seek help. The earlier you intervene, the better your employee’s chances are of recovering from addiction. Early intervention can also lessen the physical, emotional and financial damage from an addiction.
