Supervisors can play a lead role in keeping a workplace drug free

if they have specialized training. Drug Free Pennsylvania’s

supervisory training teaches managers how to recognize an employee

drug or alcohol problem and deal with it.

Specifically, Drug Free Pennsylvania helps managers map out a process


  • Identify employee substance abuse problems
  • Conduct a constructive confrontation
  • Spell out consequences
  • Offer treatment options
  • Present reinstatement conditions

The training focuses on making supervisors feel more comfortable

about initiating corrective action and decreasing incidences of managers’ blaming

themselves, rationalizing the problem, or trying to control the abuser’s

use themselves.
