With Prescription Drug Abuse … Your Work Is Done.
Nearly three of every four people involved in substance abuse hold jobs. One in every four workers aged 18 to 34 used drugs in the past year; and one worker in three knows of drug sales in the workplace. Those involved in substance abuse are five times more likely than other workers to injure themselves or coworkers, and cause 40% of industrial fatalities. They increase the risk of accidents, lower productivity, compromise product quality, raise insurance costs and reduce profits. So, it literally pays to fight substance abuse and strive for a drug-free workplace.
