In the workplace it is the responsibility of the employer to have knowledge of substance abuse and being able to provide an environment where employees who may be struggling with substance use are not negatively viewed and to get the help they need because the employer is the key to the success of the company having a drug-free workplaces. It is also important for employees to have knowledge because lots of time they have misinformation about drugs and alcohol.

According to the world’s leading authority on substance abuse which is Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA)

“Substance misuse education and prevention must be ongoing processes. In many cases, alcohol and other drug problems adversely affect employers, employees, and their families, even when the problems never come to the attention of employers.

Many employees do not seek help for their alcohol, prescription drug, or other drug problems because they are concerned that these problems may be negatively viewed. Employees might be more willing to seek the help they need when alcohol, prescription drugs, or other substances are linked to health and wellness promotion efforts.”
