Reasonable Suspicion Training DOT Drug and Alcohol Awareness for Supervisors


Our DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training programs is available in all media formats: PowerPoint, DVD Player, Video (any format); and Web Course uploadable to your company's Web server--one price, no restrictions, no additional fees, and completely customize-able.
We also have Alcohol and Drug and Awareness Training for Employees to complement the supervisor training.

If you decide to do your own DOT Supervisor Training, and present this information live, then use PowerPoint. On your PowerPoint notes you will find all the important points and the script. You can also add your own notes.

We can help you develop your own DOT Drug and Alcohol Awareness PowerPoint if yo wish. Here's how: Place the content that you would like to address into a Word Document. We will create a PowerPoint program that is professionally narrated. We can even write the content for you if you simply create a list of bullet points. Note: Twelve minutes of training equals about 40 slides.

We time the text with the voice, and use to acquire all the free images. Typically for a reasonable suspicion training program, we use about three images per slide and 30 words on a slide.

You can have us do everything for you or purchase our program. To have us create your own program, go to – Or, can also help. These Web sites can take job from scratch and final creation. You will not only get a PowerPoint with sound that plays in Slide Show View, but also a non-sound version, and a DVD for a standard DVD player, and Web video with files you can insert directly into your Web site so supervisors can train 24/7 or review the material on their own time, even a 3 a.m. in the morning. For $200 extra dollars will create a full fledged Web course with your handouts, test questions, and DOT Certificate of Completion.

Got notes on a napkin? An easel with paper? A really grotesque PowerPoint you would like spruced up? Then contact one of these two Web sites above to get an awesome and reasonably priced web course you will own forever and earn fees from for as long as you want.

Again, if you create your own DOT supervisor training program in reasonable suspicion training for drug and alcohol awareness, at a bare minimum, hit the following points.

Specify that addiction is a highly treatable illness, and that success rates consistently approach 70-80% with good follow up by the supervisor when monitored by an employee assistance program or some counseling agency that can communicate directly with you to keep you on top of progress or lack thereof.

► Employees general recover well, and frequently become better than well. Some drug addictions are tougher to treat, like cocaine addiction of course, but recovery is possible in all addictions, even the worst of the worst. Help supervisors with the DOT supervisor responsibilities understand that they are key to the success and salvaging the worst of the worst employees.

► Early action by supervisors in response to job performance problems increases the rate by which addicts are helped due to earlier referral to employee assistance programs. Symptoms of addiction that the average untrained individual may easily associate with a drinking or drug problem may not appear in the workplace until 15-20 years after the diagnosis exists.

► A history of strong contributions to the organization by the alcoholic or drug addict inhibits referrals to the EAP when problems emerge, so be careful. Do not let supervisor travel down the slippery slope of “let’s keep waiting and see if things clear up.

► The fear of job loss is a powerful motivator to consider treatment. This is why EAPs have worked so well in getting employees into treatment. This leverage is frequently more powerful than fear of family breakup for the alcoholic or addict.

► Most employees, by the time job performance is affected, have some unspoken awareness that alcohol or drugs plays some role in their personal problems. However, they are not self-diagnosed as addicts by this awareness. Instead, denial becomes a survival tool to avoid the belief that abstinence or treatment is necessary. At this point alcohol or drugs work too well and feel too good. Dependency to relieve withdrawal symptoms (frequently mistaken as "stress and anxiety") is so strong that the thought of treatment creates enormous anxiety and fear for the addict.

Can you see how the above content will make an impression on DOT Supervisors in your DOT Compliance Training Course?
