Drug free workplace programs help employers to deter, detect and take corrective action related to substance use that affects workplace safety. It provides a safer work environment while allowing the employer to mitigate the costs associated with workers who have drug or alcohol problems.

The average cost to employers is up to $25,000 annually per substance user.
