Substance abuse counselors from across the country were surveyed about their engagement in giving help to other employees and the organization and receiving help from other employees and the organization. As expected, perceived organizational support was related to well-being, showing that employees’ perceptions of receiving help from the organization relate to well-being. Receiving help from employees, in the form of coworker support, was not related to health or well-being. Giving help to employees and the organization, in the form of organizational citizenship behaviors directed at individuals and at the organization, were not related to health or well-being. Finally, gender was not a statistically significant moderator of any of the proposed relationships. Implications for theory and for practice as well as suggestions for future research are discussed.
