Over 80% of Fortune 500 corporations now test for illicit drug use before hiring an employee. According to a report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, however, potential applicants who currently use drugs are more likely to apply to smaller companies and hope they aren’t doing background checks.

This same study reports that 1 in 12 full-time workers between the age of 18-64 have used illegal drugs in the past month. This kind of substance abuse costs businesses thousands of dollars every year mostly because these employees are 1/3 less productive and are absent on average five days per month more due to drug use. They are also four times more likely to be involved in a workplace accident and file a worker’s compensation claim. That doesn’t even begin to cover how they affect other employees and raise the level of workplace violence.
