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.

Adverse Childhood Experiences: SRO's Role in Trauma-Informed Care
Trauma. It invokes different images for each of us. One person might think of a car crash involving teenage drivers, while another might remember the tragedy of a school shooting. Whatever the trauma, it's important for school resource officers to understand how its impact can negatively affect students in terms of poor attendance, diminished learning and achievement, drug and alcohol abuse, and suicide. Equally important is knowing what to look for—and how to properly respond to a student who has been affected by trauma, inside or outside of school. This is true especially during a crisis situation.
