Are you concerned about how to address prescription drug abuse in the workplace and home?
The abuse of prescription drugs (psychotherapeutics) is growing at epidemic proportions in the US. Manufacturers produce enough hydrocodone and oxycodone per year in this county to supply every citizen with 24 tabs of hydrocodone and 40 tabs of oxycodone.
Fatal overdoses of psychotherapeutics outnumber deaths from all illicit drugs combined, car accident fatalities, and homicides.
This type of drug use presents a unique and complex set of challenges for employers and individuals. If a user has a valid prescription, the use is not necessarily unlawful and may not result in a positive drug test (drug tests resulting from lawful prescription use are reported as negatives). However, many psychotherapeutics, when overused, render an employee or individual family unfit for duty.
Wienhoff Drug Testing offers a comprehensive solution to addressing this growing threat to workplace and home safety that includes supervisor and employee training, extensive drug testing panels, and access to testing program development and implementation strategies.
