Drug free workplace program – Preventing Substance Abuse at the Workplace
Chemical dependency or compulsive addictions can dramatically affect an employee’s ability to contribute productively, as high absenteeism becomes a major factor. Employing an addict can prove to be a major liability, and needs to be addressed urgently. While addicts are not to be blamed for their disease, they have to be reminded that although they are not responsible for their addiction they are responsible for their recovery, and until they take that responsibility the organization cannot employ them. In a nutshell, DFPF aims to create a healthy and drug-free work environment, increase the organization’s overall productivity, and enhance personal, interpersonal, and intra-personal skills, all achieved through a variety of training programs.
