Drug-Free Workplace Programs Overview

Alcohol & Substance Abuse Preventing Programs (ASAP) cost-effective drug-free workplace programs balance deterrence with education and assistance, to reduce alcohol and drug abuse in the workplace.

Deterrence – Identifying the signs and symptoms and consequences of substance abuse.

Education - In the form of testing and appropriate disciplinary policy.

Assistance – Supervisor support and confidential, professional help for employees.
