Drug Screening Info

Drug screening, and particularly random drug screening, is not permitted in every state in the U.S. A business should check their state's labor laws. Depending on the state and situation, there are various ways in which an employer is able to respond to failed drug tests. For example, the Americans With Disabilities Act states that a person with alcoholism has a disability which is protected under the ADA. It also states that a company may not refuse to hire an individual because of his or her alcoholism, and may not punish an alcoholic employee more severely than other employees.

In states like California, drug screening remains a thorny issue, because companies must carefully enforce any drug-screening policy in a way that does not increase their exposure to employment-related tort claims, especially for invasion of privacy.

Generally, there are four types of drug testing: pre-employment screening, random testing based on "reasonable suspicion" and post-accident testing. One common theme for all types of testing is that providing employees with advance written notice of a drug-testing policy diminishes an employee's (or applicant's) reasonable expectation of privacy.
Drug Addiction Info

Drug addiction is the compulsive use of psychoactive drugs, to the point where the user has no effective choice but to continue use. Drug addiction has grown in modern times due to improved agricultural practices and greater access to drugs. Advancements in biochemistry have exacerbated the problem significantly with the introduction of purified forms of active biological agents, and with the synthesis of previously unknown substances, such as methamphetamine. Our fast-paced, high-stress culture also turns many to using drugs to cope and relax.

Drugs such as codeine or alcohol, typically require many more exposures to addict their users than drugs such as heroin or cocaine. A person who is psychologically or genetically predisposed to addiction is much more likely to suffer from it.

Drug addiction has two components: physical dependency, and psychological dependency. Physical dependency occurs when the body has become accustomed to its effects. The person must then continue to use the drug in order to feel normal. Psychological dependency occurs when the mind has become emotionally reliant on its effects, and does not feel capable of functioning without it.
