Alcohol & Other Drug Programme

Alcohol and other drugs in the workplace pose a threat to health, safety and performance. Tackling this issue requires a comprehensive approach which is fully integrated into the operational procedures of the organisation.

While an alcohol and other drug programme does not offer instant results, when applied consistently, it can provide major long-term benefits for an organisation and its people.

Working with Instep EAP

The Alcohol and Other Drug programme is included as part of the Instep EAP service. The aim of the programme is to help educate individuals to make better decisions about alcohol and other drugs.

Organisational Benefits

A comprehensive alcohol and drug programme in your workplace will help to:


Reduce the number and severity of accidents.


Reduce absenteeism and sickness.


Give real assistance to people who need help.

Instep EAP does not undertake workplace alcohol and drug testing. Two organisations that do this work in New Zealand are the Institute of Environmental Science and Research (ESR) or The Drug Detection Agency
