Drug and alcohol addiction, and obesity: effects on employment outcomes

Dame Carol Black's independent review into the effects on employment outcomes of drug or alcohol addiction and obesity.



The government asked Professor Dame Carol Black to undertake an independent review into how best to support people who are addicted to alcohol or drugs, or are obese, to start, return or remain in work.

This review provides an evidence-based analysis of the factors that stand in the way of employment and recommends practical interventions to help overcome them.

Dame Carol ran a call for evidence to inform the review between 27 July 2015 and 11 September 2015.
