Relationship between Provider Stigma and Predictors of Staff Turnover among Addiction Treatment Providers



Relationship between Provider Stigma and Predictors of Staff Turnover among Addiction Treatment Providers



Alcoholism Treatment Quarterly 35(1): 63-70



To further our knowledge about feasible targets for improving quality of addiction treatment services, the current study provides preliminary assessment of the relationship between provider stigma and indicators of staff turnover. As predicted, results suggest that higher provider stigma was significantly related to lower ratings of job satisfaction and workplace climate. However, provider stigma was not significantly related to burnout. Our preliminary findings, if replicated, suggest the importance of considering provider stigma as a risk factor for future staff turnover and job dissatisfaction. Promising provider stigma interventions do exist and offer viable opportunity for improving quality of addiction treatment.
