Educate employees about drug and alcohol abuse to increase their awareness, reinforce drug abuse prevention efforts in your organization, and encourage them to seek confidential help for a substance use disorder to reduce risk to your organization, while potentially saving lives. Are you already educating and training supervisors in drug and alcohol awareness? This program allows you to reach all employees with essentially the same content.
This training in employee drug and alcohol awareness will help workers consider self-referral to an employee assistance program if you have one, increase the likelihood of an employee not coming to work under the influence, encourage help-seeking behaviors among employees, reduce or stop enabling, dispel myths about alcohol abuse and alcoholism, and allow employees who are parents of teenagers to be armed with information necessary to be more influential parents capable of intervening with child, teen, or college student in trouble with substance abuse.
This drug alcohol education and awareness program available in PowerPoint, DVD, Video, or Web Course starts off with awareness questions to get the ball rolling and a discussion follows concerning the answers to those questions. It engages employees and does not gloss over alcohol abuse, which is the most serious substance of abuse affecting the workplace. This drug and alcohol training will also help employees to consider their own drinking or drug use patterns. The idea here is help employees consider the next step for themselves, a spouse, or teenager with a substance abuse problem.
If you are training supervisors in drug and alcohol abuse or DOT Supervisor Training, why would you ever ignore employees?
This program was developed precisely for the language that's in it and the common myths and misconceptions employees and family members often hold. The alcohol awareness section is particularly powerful. We've even added new content on Spice/K2, a dangerous hallucinogenic substance referred as synthetic marijuana (it has no connection with marijuana whatsoever.)
This program hits all the major drug categories, discusses enabling, and even discusses treatment and mentions the family's role. We include a bunch of reproducible, editable handouts.
A complete frame-by-frame instructor's manual with expensive notes is included. This manual keeps you on target in this presentation. And we include enough content to train for hours (and educate your staff too!) You can do a short presentation, or comeback and deliver even more original content. Our fact sheets are included at no additional cost, and with the web course, the fact sheets are embedded! They include (Reg. $17) V001, V002, V005, V011, and V014 along with a reproducible Certificate of Completion.
