WHAT:
Employers across the United States lose over $100 billion a year due to  employee drug and alcohol issues. People who struggle with substance use are more likely to call out or miss work, have shorter employment tenures, and file more worker’s comp claims.

      If you are an Employer experiencing lost revenue, decreased productivity, increased absenteeism, or struggling to hire workers due to alcohol or drug issues, this is for you.  We outline how to shift workplace culture from zero tolerance to a supportive environment and how to earn Governor Sununu's RFW designation.
