Managing substance use in the workplace can be difficult and expensive but it doesn't need to be. Some types of drug testing are better replaced with policies and trainings focussed on identifying and responding to impairment.

Get clear about what drug testing is, and what it's limits are.

The Drug Foundation is an unbiased expert, and frequently provides guidance on best practice for drug testing and other alcohol and drug related issues in the workplace.

We often provide organisations with recommendations that can:

  • Save time and money
  • Improve employee satisfaction through greater compassion
  • Reduce alcohol and other drug incidents and accidents
  • Reduce harm to employees from alcohol and other drug use.

Drug Index

We believe that access to accurate, clear information is essential to reduce drug-related harm. This index provides harm reduction advice for drugs that are common in New Zealand.
