There is no area of society which is not affected by substance abuse, and this includes the business community. Lost productivity, absenteeism, errors and accidents in the workplace can often be traced back to drugs which reduce, inhibit and in many cases eliminate creativity, competence and perception.
With drug abuse rising in the workplace, many substances are being used. Prescription drugs account for 30% of the substances, which are not always detected by standard drug screens. The prescription drug of choice is Vicodin, a painkiller. Others frequently abused include Demerol, Darvon, Tylenol with codeine, anti-anxiety drugs such as Xanax and Valium, and stimulants such as Ritalin. The Narconon Program helps people to fully understand the mechanics of addiction and explains what exactly drugs do to a person's mind and body. This information leads people to know why certain feelings come with drug use and how to avoid getting into the downward spiral of substance abuse.
People using drugs in the workplace not only destroy their own lives, but very often put others around them at risk as well. It is this factor that makes it so important that employees are educated in the consequences of drug abuse.
