Counselling and Rehabilitation

A variety of rehabilitation options have been used.These have included:

  • In-house health services, EAP or counselling
  • Referral to an external counselling service or EAP
  • Allowing sick leave to attend a health/GP/counselling service selected by the individual
  • Use of on-line brief interventions

The evidence does not allow us to say one approach is superior to others.

Workplaces might adopt an approach based on local need and of course available resources. It might be worth finding out what alcohol and drug services are available in your region.
