What is the Role of the EAP When You Test Positive for Drugs?
Fully Effective Employees is the employee assistance program that has contracted with the Northwest Ceiling and Drywall Association to provide EAP services to all of its members. These services include assistance with any personal problems, drug and alcohol issues or work problems, on a confidential, voluntary basis. In addition, if an employee tests positive for drugs, the EAP will assist that employee with meeting the requirements of the drug testing program and if treatment if needed, the EAP will refer, monitor and support the employee through the process.
All of the EAP staff are certified chemical dependency counselors with mental health counseling backgrounds. All have extensive work experience and will do their utmost to assist employees in returning to work as soon as possible.
If your drug test comes back positive, there are a number of things that will happen.
It is our goal to assist all employees in returning to work as soon as possible. Please be aware that we do not fire employees or divulge confidential information to the unions or employers. If you do not follow our recommendations or if you continue to use drugs after you return to work and you test positive on another test, you may lose your job. As a result, it is our responsibility to conduct as thorough an assessment as possible. Your cooperation with this process is in your best interest.
