High Risk Work Environment

We Do Recover

A high risk work environment can be defined as a place where an individual’s health safety and well-being may be compromised. Places such as prisons, HIV clinics or any medical facilities can all be seen as high risk work environments. That said, this term is often used by the addiction recovery community to describe a situation or setting that poses a higher potential for relapse or other risky behaviors.

In a high risk work environment, individuals in recovery may encounter various triggers or temptations that could jeopardise their sobriety. These environments can include places where substances were frequently used, such as bars, nightclubs, or parties. They can also refer to workplaces or social circles where substance use is prevalent, making it challenging for those striving to maintain their recovery.

It is key to note that high risk work environments are not restricted to traditional workplaces. They can extend to any situation where individuals in recovery may find themselves in proximity to substances or peer pressure to use them.

The history of recognising high risk work environments as a specific concept within addiction recovery is not well-documented, but the understanding of the importance of avoiding such environments has evolved over time. Professionals in the addiction treatment field have come to acknowledge that removing oneself from high risk work environments can greatly enhance the chances of maintaining long-term sobriety.

To counteract the potential risks and protect your recovery, it is recommended to have a strong support system in place and to actively avoid high risk work environments whenever possible. Developing strategies to navigate these situations safely can significantly contribute to your ongoing success in recovery.
