At Greater Boston Addiction Centers, we understand that addiction can happen to anyone. Chemical dependency is a public health crisis; it is a treatable condition and should not cause people to lose their jobs. Our goal is to work with employees, authorities, family members, and unions to get people the drug treatment services they need. Give us a call at our west Boston campus at 877.920.6583 to find out more about our career-saving employee assistance programs (EAPs).
Employee Assistance Programs in the Boston Area
If you are addicted to a substance with harmful side effects, it’s going to affect your job. Ignoring the problem may work for a little while, but it will prevent you from reaching your potential. Boston workers struggling with addiction have every reason to consider an employee assistance program. At GBAC we work to promote, establish, and increase the quality of our clients’ lives, good health, personal experiences, and job performance. Our goal is to work in collaboration with authorities, commissions, employees, and family members to restore and initiate well-being in work and life.

Substance abuse disorders, alcoholism, and addiction have become a public health crisis in the United States. Although most people can become chemically addicted to a substance, there are certain risk factors (such as family history) that increase the likelihood of developing an addiction. Thousands of people in Massachusetts die from overdoses every year. At Greater Boston Addiction Centers, we offer the tools, strategies, and resources to help people get their lives back. As a progressive condition, addiction requires treatment; without treatment, the symptoms get worse over time. Relapsing happens when a person in recovery begins using alcohol or drugs after a sustained abstinence period, and recovery is part of the recovery process.
