The Impact Drug Abuse & Workplace Drug Testing Has On Your Company

Understanding The Impact Drug Abuse & Workplace Drug Testing
Has On Your Company
 

A recent drug-testing report - Economic Value of Drug Testing in the Workplace for Health Payers & Employers - addresses opportunities for health payers and employers and suggests
ways that they can utilize drug testing designed to:
  • Decrease Employee Turnover and Absenteeism
  • Reduce Employer Risk
  • Lower Workers' Compensation Rates
"Study highlights that employment drug testing provides  
far-reaching organizational and societal benefits,  
and promotes a safer, more productive workplace."
 
The pervasive opioid crisis is devastating America's hard-working, middle class, and has become an imperative for health payers and employers to gain a more comprehensive understanding of how deeply this issue goes.

Statistical Facts:
  1. Employees who abuse prescription drugs are:
    • Two-to-five times more likely than others to take unexcused absences
    • Late for work
    • Get injured or act violently at work
    • File Workers' Compensation claims
    • Quit or get fired within one year of employment
2. By contrast, research indicates employees in substance abuse recovery save
     their companies  more than $3,200 a year.

Report Highlights:
  1. Drug abuse costs U.S. business owners more than $140 billion annually.
  2. 70% of the 14.8 million Americans who abuse drugs are employed.
  3. Up to 20 percent of work-related fatalities test positive for drugs or alcohol.
  4. 71 percent of U.S. employers say they have been affected by employee misuse of legally prescribed medications, including opioids.
  5. Employees in organizations without drug testing programs have 30% to 40%  higher self-reported past month drug use.
