Drugs and alcohol in the workplace

If you are concerned about drug or alcohol misuse in the workplace there is help at hand. A support group has been set up and is keen to provide literature and posters for any campaigns to deal with drug and alcohol problems.

The Brighotn & Hove Healthy Workplace Network met last week and has produced a comprehensive list of websites and other sources of information.

If you are planning to run an alcohol and drugs campaign or just want to raise the awareness amongst your employees, you may find in the list below some useful links for information, policies, posters and interactive websites.

Posters, Leaflets, Info.

Drug and alcohol misuse, help and information for employers, an overview: see the FRANK at work section, which have action packs and posters to download/order.

For some great alcohol unit calculator wheels to hand out, contact the Drinkaware Trust:,com_contact/Itemid,57/ To order posters and leaflets from the local health promotion library go to:

For more posters, leaflets and information on local campaigns please contact Sarah Berger, Substance Misuse Health Promotion worker, B&H on: Tel: 01273 265 650

Interactive websites Two good local websites with interactive drinkometers, drink tests, quizzes, facts and information about where to get help and advice, ideal to circulate to employees:
