Substance misuse is described as the problematic use of alcohol, drugs (legal or illegal) and other substances such as solvents or New Psychoactive Substances (formerly known as legal highs).
Problematic use means the substance damages a person’s mental or physical health, their relationships or their working lives. Substance misuse affects the individual and the organisation.
Those who misuse substances may find that their performance is affected, that they develop mental health problems, or they are off work more often.
A person who uses drugs or alcohol inappropriately at work, or who comes to work while under the influence of drugs or alcohol puts themselves and others’ safety at risk.
The Alcohol and Drug Awareness course highlights the dangers and encourages those who may have a problem to seek help and to avoid the problem being treated as a disciplinary matter rather than as a health problem.
