Drug or alcohol abuse is, unfortunately, a common occurrence at work.  Training your Managers and supervisors to be aware of employees who might be under the influence of drugs or alcohol is very important.  Recognizing employees who are abusing drugs or alcohol is the first step in getting them the help they need. This benefits both the business and the employees.  Our training for managers on Drug and Alcohol Awareness will teach your managers what they need to know.

  • What is a manager’s role in recognizing drug or alcohol abuse while at work?
  • How big is the substance abuse problem in the United States?
