Methamphetamine in the Workplace

Methamphetamine is a highly addictive substance, and research indicates that it is a significant and growing problem afflicting individuals, families and communities across the nation. All segments of society are affected by meth, and all have a role to play in preventing its spread and helping those impacted by its devastating effects.

Some businesses are responding to the problem by altering certain business practices to help curb methamphetamine production. Through effective employment policies and practices—such as drug-free workplace programs—employers can also take steps to protect themselves and their workers against its negative consequences in the workplace.
