Slide presentation What Can I Do?

The purpose of this module is to learn when and how to help a co-worker (or family member or friend) who may have a substance use problem.  The misuse of drugs and alcohol affects EVERYBODY, not just the user. 

To further the effort to promote drug-free awareness in the workplace, the following presentation is available to educate employees about a drug-free workplace and the dangers of alcohol and drug addiction.

An informational slide presentation is available to help
supervisors recognize symptoms of substance misuse and do their part to support a drug free workplace.

Often, supervisors are aware that an employee’s job
performance and behavior have deteriorated, but are unsure of the cause. A supervisor does not have to know the cause to address the performance or behavior issue or offer appropriate resources. Learn how to refer an employee to KEAP in this Supervisory Training Module.
