Sometimes,
the worst thing
you can do
to a drug user
is the only way
to help.
8 Drug use is a question of
extremes. People who use
drugs are either addicted
or in danger of addiction.
The results of drug
addiction are poor perfor-
mance, absenteeism,
theft, robbery, industrial
accidents, and death.
And addicts often
take others down with them.
Loved ones, co-workers,
even employers.
Addicts seldom get
well or even get into treatment
by themselves. Someone
/ has to help. You could be
that person. If you're willing
to get involved.
When you say, in no
uncertain terms, "Get
well or get out, you may
be awakening the addict
to the one reality that can
save her.
Threatening to fire an
addict is the worst thing
you can do to her.
Or the best. If it gets her
into treatment.
To find out how to set
up a treatment program in
your company, please call
1-800-843-4971. That's the
National Institute on Drug
Abuse hot line for managers
and CEOs. It's manned by
trained Employee Assistance
Program planners and
designers, from Monday
through Friday, 9:00 a.m.
to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
They won't tell you what
to do, but they can outline the
options.
