FMLA for Alcoholism and Addiction

Many people worry that seeking treatment for alcoholism or addictions will force them to lose their jobs. Fortunately, the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows individuals to use FMLA for mental health and substance abuse issues. As a result, if you have an alcohol or drug abuse problem, you can get help without losing your job. In fact, many people can get help for their alcoholism or addictions without having to take time away from work. The Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program at New Dimensions is held during the evening which allows most people to be able to continue to work while they are in treatment for alcoholism or addictions. In addition, New Dimensions also provides treatment for individuals who are struggling with both mental health and substance abuse issues. So, if you are having trouble functioning at work, you can access your FMLA benefits to focus on your recovery and healing without the added pressures of work.
