Part I showed how the “drugs at work” problem may be recognized, understood and prevented. It also put drugs testing and screening into perspective, identified the range of remedial actions which will provide a solution, and showed – as a first main step – how further escalation of the problem can be halted. This second part proceeds to the second main step – reducing the numbers of employees who are already using drugs and alcohol – and indicates the main organizations and rehabilitation programmes which are already providing effective long‐lasting answers. Also examines costs in terms of time and money and gives initial contact data.
