, conducted an extensive analysis of two large government-sponsored epidemiological surveys, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) and the National Comorbidity Survey. This analysis estimates the workplace impact of alcohol problems -- categorized as alcohol dependence (alcoholism) and alcohol abuse -- on 13 sectors of U.S. industry.

The impact of alcohol problems in the workplace is a tremendous hidden challenge -- in part because very few people with an alcohol problem are ever identified, said Andrew Webber, president and CEO of the National Business Coalition on Health. In the past, employers have led the way to doing more for people with chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Its time for American industry to do the same for people with alcohol problems.

The results of the Ensuring Solutions analysis have been used to develop a Web-based calculator that employers can use to estimate the impact of alcohol problems and the potential cost savings to be gained through workplace screening and brief intervention. The calculator is available at http://www.alcoholcostcalculator.org.

In addition to analyzing the scope of workplace alcohol problems, the report promotes the adoption of a practice known as Screening and Brief Intervention (SBI). SBI has been shown to reduce excessive alcohol use when administered to patients in a variety of settings, including hospitals and universities. Ensuring Solutions believes that if SBI were to become a widespread practice in primary care, workplace wellness programs and employee assistance, the prevalence of workplace alcohol problems would be significantly reduced.
