Alcohol and depression

Alcohol is a depressant

It is a drug, and it causes impaired behavior, judgment, coordination, and slurred speech. Alcohol is ingested through drink and many people become addicted to alcohol very easily. Alcohol is generally socially acceptable, and the alcoholic sometimes cannot be easily spotted. Because of the widespread usage and social acceptance of alcohol it has become a major concern and cause of alcohol related deaths in motor vehicles, criminal charges, fines, and loss of lives are the outcome.

Alcoholism is very scary, you see with other drugs such as crack and heroin they take their toll on the individual very quickly in terms of physical condition, appearance, financial situation, and general responsibility level.With alcohol, and in part because of its social acceptance, it takes longer for the person’s condition to come down to a point where he or she realizes they need help or other around them realize help is needed and at that point the person’s body can be is such rough shape irreversible damage can be done.

Alcohol creates a physical dependency and with some cases a medical detox procedure is needed to safely help the addicted person withdraw from the drug, most Rehab Centers will have resources to accommodate this procedure.

Drug Problems

Drug Problems, tips on handling

You may be one of the few people who never had to deal with someone with a drugs problem or abusing alcohol. You may have seen it in movies or heard about it around the office but overall it’s a distant understanding of the real issues at hand.

Over the last 3 decades the groups against drunk driving have stepped up their promotional ads, the government has applied stricter regulations and rules and the enforcement officers have been more vigilant and less tolerant in their search for those who would defy these tougher laws against our social drug problem.

You may not know anyone with a drug problem but there out there and now the ads on television are beginning to direct their attention to “drug driving” which is now considered just as harmful as drunk driving. But has anyone bothered to inform the public on how does this become a problem? Why would anyone decide to poison themselves? What reason could anyone have to justify drinking 26 oz. of Rum or wine to the point of going unconscious?

Drug Problems, Knowing is controlling

If you know what is causing someone to self-destruct you have gained some control over the situation. As simple as finding out that a door is missing oil on its hinges to stop it from squeaking. People take drugs and alcohol because of an underlying unwanted condition. Now this condition can be a varied as there are drug problem cases. Rarely is it the most evident surface behavior one sees. It’s hidden and unwanted and often it is not even recognized by the person.

The best way to handle a drug problem is to get informed about it, ask, read, observe. There are people in the field of drug addiction that will tell you about chemical imbalances, genetic material or the will of a higher power. But factually only a small percentage of children are from drug mothers. And again genetics has only a small part to play in the possible addictive action. As for higher power, well that is up to you to decide, though keep this in mind, people make their own choices and decisions.

Drug Rehabs and Oil Industry workforce

Drug Rehab Options for Oil Industry Workers

The oil industry is big business. Millions of dollars are on the line when dealing with oil companies and their ways of conducting business in each aspect of the job. Like any business, accidents and injury can mean huge losses to the company. Insurance rates go up, the company can lose employees and even be subject to lawsuits when drug or alcohol addiction is present in the work-place. Since addiction is so prevalent, it is certain there are going to be a percentage of workers who are affected by drug and/or alcohol addiction. In Canada, at the moment, the Oil Industry is prevalent in Alberta but developing in other provinces and why not it does produce an economic boom! But unfortunately this also attracts drug traffickers, they see a potential for business with money available in abundance and people needing to relax after a long stretch of shift, or celebrating their new found fortune.

Addiction problems in the workforce

A drug addict poses a threat not only to themselves, but to the company as well. However, drug addicts may otherwise be exemplary employees. Drug addiction changes a person physically, mentally and spiritually, so they must be treated on all of those fronts in order to be successful in living a drug-free life. A wonderful employee can become a hazard to all when he or she becomes a drug addict. Firing a great employee because of drug addiction may well cost the company money in the long run to train a new employee and that is assuming the new employee even works out.

Addiction solution for workers

Many drug addicts are able to work with little or no suspicion. They continue to work without getting help because they can. Besides that, there is often the worry that they will be fired from their jobs if they take time off of work to beat drug addiction. Employers that provide holistic drug and alcohol addiction services are benefiting the company and the employee. With a program available, a drug addict is more apt to ask for and get help than if they have to worry about losing their job. The company is then able to retain good workers by helping them to overcome their drug addiction and become more productive, safe and conscientious workers. Holistic drug treatment is a win-win situation.

Oil industry companies in Fort McMurray and others around the world are learning the benefits of providing holistic drug and alcohol treatment for their employees. Addiction is rampant. Therefore, treating the problem is preferable to taking a chance on firing an employee only to hire another drug addict. The cost to the oil company for comprehensive drug addiction services is minimal compared to the cost due to absences and injuries directly related to drug addiction.
