Landing a job mostly hinges on whether you are deemed physically and mentally capable of the workload needed. If you have substance abuse issues, however, you can well expect that your prospective employer will pass you over for hiring. That’s something hard to digest. Annalyn Kurtz of CNN Money, cited data from the 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, stating that one of every six unemployed workers are struck with drug/alcohol abuse.
The above may be peculiar to employers in Missouri, which has no official statutes for drug testing among private companies. They are given the freedom, however, to enact workplace drug policies. The Drug-Free Workplace Act even mandates testing protocol that is compliant with the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment. If you’ve been hit with substance abuse, but want to make sure you’re in the clear before applying for another job, professionals at drug rehab in Missouri like the Midwest Institute for Addiction (MIA) are eager to help you.
