How Can We Overcome Addiction?
The Family Business Voice

00:00 / 00:23:33

On this episode of the Family Business Voice, Jan Gerber, Chairman of Paracelsus Recovery in Zurich, speaks with Ramia about the cycle of addiction and why some family business members self-medicate to deal with stress in the workplace.

– A preventive approach, according to Gerber, is the most effective way for family business members to look after each other’s mental health, so awareness and communication are critical.

– Stress is the most significant trigger for anxiety – a key ingredient in mental health and addiction problems. We live in a world where both the young and old say they are under more stress than ever before.

– Family businesses in crisis should reach out for help. A professional can tell whether or not the situation constitutes a mental health crisis and, if it does, what can be done to address it.
