About the event

Join us for a LifeWorks training session that combines lecture elements with a variety of interactive features with Munir Velji and Paul Wheeler.

The chronic, uncontrollable, and excessive use of alcohol or illegal drugs is a serious medical disease called addiction. A person with an addiction typically has great difficulty consistently carrying out normal work and family responsibilities. Co-workers are often the first to notice erratic behavior in another employee that could be a symptom of a substance abuse problem. It’s not the job of co-workers (or even supervisors) to diagnose a substance abuse problem; this course will give you some way you might address the situation.
