A Better Today Recovery Services says #Thank A Teacher by giving back

Now, more than ever, teachers need to be appreciated for their dedication, that is why A Better Today Recovery Services is announcing our Teacher Appreciation Program. ABTRS understands that getting sucked into addiction can happen to anyone. Sometimes it happens to those who work hard at their jobs and develop unhealthy coping strategies for stress.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics in 2011, teachers worked more than 52 hours a week. These hours were spent on instruction lesson prep, tutoring, and grading school work. To make matter worse, 65% of teachers say that public school teachers’ salaries are NOT fair for the work they do and the effort they put into educating the next generation.

Alcoholism begins with the bad habit of having a couple of beers to unwind after a long and stressful day. When that becomes the only means of distressing for teachers because that is the only time you have, they put their health and career in danger.

ABTRS wants to help the teachers who educate our children and prepare them for the future by providing confidential, no cost outpatient treatment to help those who meet the criteria for admission. We’re offering no cost and confidential Evening Intensive Outpatient Services (EIOP). Apply today for 8 hours a week of outpatient services at no cost. Treatment is from 5pm to 8pm on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday beginning June 1st.

Can I Use Intermittent FMLA For This No-Cost IOP Service?

Yes, you can use Intermittent FMLA for this type of outpatient treatment. The best part about use Intermittent FMLA is that is completely confidential to all management, supervisors, and employees.

What is Intermittent FMLA?

Instead of leaving for the full 12 months, intermittent FMLA is an option for employees who want to use FMLA leave in a more flexible way. For example, FMLA is often used for surgeries or medical procedures that require a length of consecutive leave time. Intermittent FMLA leave involves using days or hours, broken down into increments over the year. So, if you were doing physical therapy or outpatient services and it required you to take off of work 3 hours early to make these appointments or session, Intermittent FMLA would be what you would utilize.

Intermittent FMLA can also be used to care for a family member with a serious illness or receive treatments over time. When an employee who suffers from a condition or illness that causes “flare-ups” or periods of time where they cannot work is another incident where intermittent FMLA is utilized.
