Key is "growing"... implies current condition

A has "which already are a cost to business of" => wordy & probably incorrect grammatically

C has "already with business costs of" => changes the meaning implying drug and alcohol are business costs

B is correct because it is concise and meaning is made clear.

Yes B is correct.
D and E are out because 'significantly compounding ' is required.
A and C are out due to reasons as given by haas_mba.

I choose (B) but think it should read "businesses" at the end.
