Abstract:

In this book, the author takes a close look at what we know and don't know about workforce and workplace substance involvement. In doing so, he exposes the lack of evidence behind many popular myths that have persisted since the "war on drugs" began in the 1980s, including (1) the myth that workplace alcohol and illicit drug use is highly prevalent; (2) the myth that employee substance use has a strong effect on productivity, leading to high costs for employers; and (3) the myth that drug testing and employee assistance programs are proven ways for employers to deter substance use. The author's review covers research conducted over the past 30 years; and he analyzes methodological limitations and the tendency of many science reporters to "go beyond the data" when interpreting results. Given the need for evidence-based management and policy, this book is a resource for researchers and practitioners in management, occupational health, and addiction treatment and prevention.
