Business Outcomes  

Research shows that contrary to popular opinion, the vast majority of alcoholics and drug users are not derelicts living on the streets, and they are people holding down jobs, often-responsible jobs, in our workforce. No one wins when drugs and alcohol are mixed with work. By having an educated workforce, your organization will reduce the risks of lateness and absenteeism, lost time and production from accidents, inefficiency, and the possible damage to plant, equipment and other property.
