More About This Title Alcohol and Illicit Drug Use in the Workforce and Workplace

English

In this authoritative book, Michael R. Frone takes a close, hard look at what we know and don’t know about workforce and workplace substance involvement. In doing so, he exposes the lack of evidence behind many popular myths that have persisted since the 1980s “war on drugs.”

Frone’s comprehensive review covers nearly all of the related research conducted over the past 20-30 years, including several national studies and government reports as well as the broader research literature. In particular, Frone analyzes methodological limitations and the tendency of many science reporters to “go beyond the data” when interpreting results.

Given the need for evidence-based management and policy, this book will be a comprehensive resource for researchers and practitioners in management, occupational health, and addiction treatment/prevention.
