Drug and Alcohol Addiction Awareness Certification
Drug and alcohol addiction has grown ever more prevalent in modern society. There are varying levels of this often misunderstood disorder, and the ability to recognise each of them has become increasingly important, especially in the workplace.
Employees with substance abuse disorders have a tendency to be less productive and produce a lower quality of work. Identifying these individuals and getting them the help that they need is vital in maintaining a healthy work environment.
Through familiarising yourself and other staff with the warning signs, you can learn to quickly detect when an individual may be developing an issue.
