I don't see where Jennyiferny posted must be in other comments. I don't have anything nasty to say, I just have to disagree with you. Between MRIs done, blood testd all kind of tests, it is seen what I have. That I actually need that medication. I go and see a pain management Dr and her exact words are " you are too young to have these problems." Smart Dr. not knowing that is a lawsuit waiting to happen. She has everything in her hands, all of my medical records and still says that. I do have to agree with you it's because of people who abuse the system, that the people who actually need it can't get it. That really pisses me off.
Drug testing is only one component of a comprehensive drug-free workplace program, which also includes a written policy that clearly outlines employer expectations regarding drug use; training for supervisors on the signs and symptoms of drug use and their role in enforcing the policy; education for employees about the dangers of drug use; and an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to provide counseling and referral to employees struggling with drug problems. DOL’s online Drug-Free Workplace Advisor helps employers develop customized drug-free workplace policies (that may or may not including drug testing) by reviewing the different components of a comprehensive policy and then generating a written policy statement based on the user’s responses to pre-set questions and statements. (An organization’s name and logo can be incorporated and further modifications to the statement made if desired.) If an organization already has a drug-free workplace policy in place, this tool can be used to ensure it addresses all necessary issues. Because it is important to understand and incorporate the various state and Federal regulations that may apply, it is also recommended that legal consultation be sought before commencing a drug testing program.
