  1. Self-insurance and worksite alcohol programs : An econometric analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    The worksite is an important point of access for alcohol treatment and prevention, but not all firms are likely to find offering alcohol programs profitable.

    This study attempts to identify at a conceptual and empirical level factors that are important determinants of the profitability of worksite alcohol programs.

    A central question considered in the empirical analysis is whether firms'decisions about worksite alcohol programs are related to how employee group health insurance is provided.

    Method 

    The data used are from the 1992 National Survey of Worksite Health Promotion Activities (N=1,389-1,412).

    The econometric analysis focuses on measures of whether the surveyed firms offer Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs), individual counseling, group classes and resource materials regarding alcohol and other substance abuse.

    Results
