To garner support for the program, it is essential to have data to back up your argument. Identify organizational indicators of substance abuse-related liabilities such as increases in accidents, theft and property losses, security breaches, benefits utilization, absenteeism, training costs, and workers' comp claims. Obtain national, state and/or local statistics gathered by substance abuse agencies, medical or health societies, hospitals, or treatment facilities to show employees why a substance abuse program is good for business and their overall health.
