Workplace Training  

One of the many myths surrounding people struggling with addiction is that they are unemployed. In reality, as many as 70 percent of drug abusers are employed, and abusing drugs at and/or outside of work. With this statistic in mind, it is much easier to understand why workplace training programs, such as the Work Drug-Free program, are so important. 

This community-based training is meant to help foster a healthy, drug and alcohol-free work environment. Workplaces that remain free of drug and alcohol abuse demonstrate teamwork, communication, respect and productivity. At Neil Kennedy Recovery Centers, we provide companies of all sizes access to our Work Drug-Free program. We educate program participants on the following five steps they can take to ensure a drug-free workplace:

  • Written Policy
  • Employee Education
  • Supervisor Training
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • Drug Testing
