They often turn to drugs or alcohol to cope with stress and enhance performance. This has led to an increase in drug-related fatality rates among executives. Fortunately, some drug rehab centers have modified their treatment methods to help employers address the causes of addiction and find healthy ways to maintain productivity and cope with stress. Executives use drugs to cope with physical and mental exhaustion. The drugs of choice include cocaine, Adderall and alcohol. Combining stimulants, like cocaine and Adderall, with alcohol significantly increases the likelihood of a fatal overdose.
