Nearly 20 million Americans 12 years of age or older admit to using illicit drugs currently. That represents about eight percent of the total U.S. population in that age group. The number of Americans who admit to having used illicit drugs at least once in the past year is even higher. Results from a U.S. Postal Service study indicate that employees who tested positive on their pre-employment drug test were 77 percent more likely to be dismissed within the first three years of employment, and were absent from work 66 percent more often than those who tested negative.
No business or governmental entity today is immune to problems associated with drug and alcohol abuse. Substance abuse contributes to on-the-job accidents, lower productivity, greater absenteeism, higher healthcare costs and heightened threats to the health and safety of employees.
