Nearly 68 percent of all adult illicit drug users are employed, as are most binge and alcohol users. Studies show that when compared with non-substance abusers, substance-abusing employees are more likely to:

  • change jobs frequently
  • be late to or absent from work
  • be less productive employees
  • be involved in a workplace accident and potentially harm others
  • file a workers' compensation claim
  • Employers who have implemented drug-free workplace programs have important experiences to share

  • Employers with successful drug-free workplace programs report improvements in morale and productivity, and decreases in absenteeism, accidents, downtime, turnover and theft.
  • Employers with longstanding programs report better health status among employees and family members and decreased use of medical benefits by these same groups
  • Some organizations with drug-free workplace programs qualify for incentives, such as decreased costs for workers' compensation and other kinds of insurance
