Building a Drug-Responsible Workplace


Substance Misuse Toolkit

A drug-responsible workplace benefits your business, your employees and West Virginia communities. In this free, online toolkit, we provide education and resources to equip your business to prevent and respond to substance misuse and support employees in recovery.


I wanted to send a quick email of genuine appreciation for the Substance Misuse Toolkit you all created. I've been employing people in recovery and people with work history gaps for about the past year and I badly needed to get more effective at supporting them. This is exactly what I needed to better understand how to be better prepared, to better support, and to better serve my staff. I have a lot more confidence in working with people because of the resources you created and openly allowed access.
