How well are your employees coping with stress? Some will rely on alcohol/drugs to self-medicate to reduce the pressure. We know 35% of those with a mental illness will also misuse alcohol and drugs. Is your business at risk? Drug testing alone is not enough.

  • understand how easy it is to return a positive alcohol or drug test the next day
  • how to identify if someone has a problem
  • what can your business do to reduce their liability
