A company's success comes from getting the most out of their employees on a daily basis. An immense hurdle facing employee productivity today is the abuse of drugs and alcohol within and outside the company.
Substance abusers are 5 times more likely than non-abusers to injure themselves or others in the workplace. Also, according to the American Council for Drug Education, drug abusers are 10 times more likely to miss work, 33% less productive, 5 times more likely to file a worker's comp claim and are responsible for 40% of all industrial fatalities.
Absenteeism, tardiness, accidents, theft and non-productive time can cost employers thousands of dollars a year.
