Workplace Impairment and Reasonable Suspicion

Did you know that 60% of people who report difficulties with addictive substances are employed full-time? This means that up to 20 million U.S. employees are using substances in a way that likely impacts their work or workplace. CSEAP is available to support employees who are concerned about addiction or problem use of substances. CSEAP also assists supervisors, managers, and leaders in responding to impairment impacting the workplace and addressing an employee-of-concern. National Business Group on Health, 2009.
