Alcoholism threatens families worldwide, and takes a particularly harsh toll on poor families, according to public health specialists, social scientists, and community activists. At present, alcohol accounts for 4 percent of the global burden of diseases almost the same share of death and disability that is attributed to tobacco and hypertension. Most individuals who use alcohol in an abusive way will display one or more of four drinking-related problems including disruption of daily life, legal issues, social difficulties, and drinking in dangerous situations. As a supervisor, you have an important role in dealing with alcohol problems in the workplace, along with other agency officials. You have the day-to-day responsibility to monitor the work and on-the-job conduct of your employees. You are not responsible for diagnosing alcoholism in employees. Employees who suffer from it need the agency's compassion. However, sometimes that compassion has to be firm in order to communicate that, while the agency is willing to help the employee get assistance, the employee is ultimately responsible for his or her own rehabilitation, recovery, and performance.
