Drug & Alcohol Use Is Skyrocketing… Don’t Let It Infect Your Workplace
Reduce Liability and Protect Your Employees
More than 20.4 million adults are classified with substance dependence or abuse. The use of illicit drugs, prescription medications and alcohol causes impairments that can affect work performance and put others at risk. It could be a fatal fallacy to believe this national scourge hasn’t touched your company.

Final confirmation is usually reported within three days. A member of our team will notify a corporate officer about results that indicate the need to withhold medical clearance for work.
