Attitudes to addiction in 2019

Organisation: Port of Call


Addictions often go hand-in-hand with mental health problems such as stress and depression.

Port of Call’s research has found that one in five people think their job would be in jeopardy if their performance was suffering and they admitted to an addiction. And only 22% believe their employer would do something to help if they had an addiction.

However, reducing the shame around addiction can be one of the first steps to helping people to get better – and employers can help.

This website provides information and statistics, which could help employers and colleagues support staff with addictions.
