Companies need to stay current with drug testing policies and expand existing testing panels to include commonly prescribed medications (opioids), as well as illicit drugs and alcohol. By testing for prescription drug abuse, an employer is, in essence, offering employees access to help and treatment. But while establishing a drug testing policy is important, it's often a limited first step. After all, a drug test only identifies use of a drug, not how to address the addiction or prevent one from developing. That's where an employee assistance program (EAP) can help.
