Each year drug use costs the New Zealand economy around $1.3bn. These costs come in the form of days off work, medical aid and ACC cover, customs issues and more. So is this a losing battle? Well, those with the will to fight this war on drugs know that it starts small. Many companies lose thousands of dollars a year because of a lack of productivity from employees and this is directly related to drug use. So what's the solution?
Well, how about installing a mandatory drug testing procedure, both in the initial employment process, and again during employment via random tests. With a no-tolerance policy on drug use, companies are garanteed to increase productivity.
This is an example of a singe test cassette that tests for the presence of THC or MET and instructions on how to use them.
Are you worried that someone in your life is using drugs and it's affecting who they are? Someone who doesn't think that they have a problem will be offended and probably very defensive if confronted with a drug test from a loved one. However, once past the initial shame, and if the user wants to give up, research shows that their best chance of fighting addiction is be accountable to someone. Random drug tests work well but sometimes you may find that scheduled drug tests work best. If a user knows that a drug test is coming up they might think twice about using.
