Work with Marty Nemko, 3/22/18: Stephen Pfleiderer on Substance Abuse and the Workplace and Career

Mar 20, 2018

  The legalization of recreational marijuana combined with the opioid epidemic is bringing substance abuse, pardon the pun, higher in our consciousness. And of course, the effects of substance abuse don’t abate at the workplace door. So it’s appropriate that on this radio program that focuses on career and workplace issues, we take a look at substance abuse in the workplace, what to do if you think you have a problem, or are or a coworker with or supervisor of someone you think might have a problem. That's Topic 1 on the Mar. 22, 2018 edition of Work with Marty Nemko.

To discuss the issue with mem, my guest, Stephen Pfleiderer. After getting his bachelor’s at Johns Hopkins and a master’s at the University of Cincinnati, he studied addiction treatment under the famed Dr. David Burns, author of Feeling Good. He’s since gone on to do countless consultations and interventions.  Based here in San Francisco, he is the director of SF Intervention.

In the program's 2nd segment, listeners call in for a Workover. Whatever the career problem, I can usually help. The price is certainly right.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Thursday from 7 to 8 PM on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on KALW.org.

The programs are archived on NPR.org, iTunes, and in perpetuity on this web page.
