Drug-Free Work Week kicks off

Oct. 19-25 marks the fourth annual Drug-Free Work Week campaign, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor's Working Partners for an Alcohol- and Drug-Free Workplace program. This year's campaign is highlighting the impact a drug-free workplace has on families and communities.

"Successful drug-free workplace programs provide a safe and healthy environment for workers, and result in a productive workplace for employers," said Elena M. Carr, drug policy coordinator for U.S. DOL's Office of the Assistant Secretary for Policy.
