Employers are finding that drug and alcohol misuse can affect their organisations in a number of ways:

Many organisations now have policies on drug and alcohol testing; particularly organisations involved in safety critical industries such as transport, logistics or engineering. Lapses of concentration where employee or public safety is at risk can potentially be fatal. However, having a policy on its own only identifies the problem, it doesn’t necessarily solve it. Employers who offer assistance through access to treatment are also encouraging employees with problems to come forward. Organisations with a zero tolerance approach to substance misuse will simply drive the problem underground.

As a coping mechanism for stress, substance misuse can lead to the loss of key staff when, through effective treatment, they can be retained.

We can accept an employee for treatment as the need arises. We can also add value by working with you to develop a process where access to assistance is faster and more efficient. We can provide education and training for your staff so that potential problems can be identified earlier and successful interventions made.
