Seminar and Open Day at Newmarket – 16th July 2013
SEMINAR AND TOUR OF ABBEYCARE’S NEWMARKET REHAB: Alcohol misuse – signs, symptoms and commercial considerations Tuesday 16th July, 5.30-7.30pm Alcohol is the most frequently abused drug in the world and addiction is on the rise across the whole of the UK. Alcohol is part of our culture – but drinking too much can have serious impacts on a person’s health – damage organs, weaken the immune system and contribute to cancers. Beyond the harmful consequences for the addicted individual, alcohol abuse can cause serious health problems for others, and alcohol and drug misuse can cost companies billions of pounds. When the abuse of alcohol interferes with the employee’s ability to perform his or her duties, an employer does have legitimate business concerns, including the proper performance of duties, health and safety issues, employee conduct at the workplace, and commercial considerations. Therefore it is important that employers are aware of the signs and symptoms to look out for and that they understand their options available to them to tackle this growing concern. Come along to our seminar to hear from experts in the industry and also see Abbeycare Newmarket, the UK’s only private residential alcohol specific detox and treatment centre. Programme:
