Focusing on Gratitude
This month we are focusing on gratitude! Thanks to our many clients who choose to be Drug Free and make our communities a better place to live. This month we are especially thankful for Orion Industries. This non-profit provides job-training and job opportunities for employees who may have had barriers to meaningful work in the past. Orion trains, mentors and provides ongoing guidance after the trainees have been placed in manufacturing and customer service jobs.

Here are some tips on how to politely decline or to limit alcohol when celebrating with friends and family. Click on the picture above for alcohol awareness information for your employees.
Be busy. Hold a non-alcohol beverage in hand, while mingling at the party or offer to help the host or hostess.
Be present. Be interested, engage with people and enjoy yourself. Honestly, most people won’t even notice or care if you are drinking alcohol or not.
Be ready. Bring your own beverage and know what you’re going to say in advance. Offer to be the designated driver or say you have an early day tomorrow, or even simpler, just say no thanks, no explanation needed.
Be honest. If you or a loved one is struggling with alcohol, you may want a trusted family or friend to be there for you or consider confidentially reaching out for help.
