Drug and alcohol abuse can affect anyone; whether it is you personally, a family member, or someone you know. Individuals who are addicted often start out believing they are in control, only to find out they are the ones being ruled by the substances they are using. While addiction can certainly damage one’s personal life, it can also negatively impact their workplace and the people around them. In this training, you will learn about the hazards of addiction, various substances to which one can become addicted, the effects it has on the workplace, and how it can be prevented.

Substance abuse can be the overuse of alcohol, misuse of over the counter medication, or use of illegal drugs. It can also mean inhalation of chemicals or consuming toxic plants. Many kinds of substances can be abused, and each type poses a different risk to those under the influence, and others around them, while on the job. This course demonstrates the affects different substances have on employees and the unique dangers they pose.
