It is common for young men with addictions to face numerous workplace problems. Because substance abuse can lead to impulsive, violent, and unpredictable behavior, many experience interpersonal conflicts with coworkers and employers. During hangovers or periods of withdrawal, it can be hard to muster up the willpower to get out of bed in the morning and go to work. Absenteeism is common. Addicts who do manage to get to work every day often nonetheless do a shoddy job and are written up for performance issues. While some manage to hang on to their jobs by a thread, it is quite common for young men with addictions to be fired from their jobs, often repeatedly.

Employment support is part of a unique approach at Design for Recovery, one where the focus is on long-term sobriety and financial independence beyond the walls of sober living—that removing drugs and alcohol only begins the process of rebuilding a broken life. Again, this is an evidence-based approach supported by organizations like The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, which includes employment support in what it calls “sustained recovery management.” More specifically, “a positive alternative to the current common approach of ‘admit, treat, and discharge’, often resulting in revolving-door cycles of high dropout rates, relapse and readmission rates.” See here for information about 190th St at Normandie Av, Los Angeles, CA To Sober Living by Design for Recovery
