The U.S. Surgeon General reports that nearly 21 million Americans live with substance abuse disorders, costing the U.S. economy more than $400 billion annually. Substance abuse is a problem that can seriously affect all employees in the workplace. Employees will learn about the dangers of over-the-counter, prescription, and illegal drug misuse, substance addiction at work or in their personal life, common elements of workplace drug-free policies, the drug testing methods employers use and their legal rights regarding testing, and how their workplace could respond to the discovery that an employee is misusing substances. This course is presented in English and Spanish.
