Addiction leads the mind to commit acts of crime or vandalism that the individual otherwise would never even dream of committing. Addiction leads the individual to desperate action, action that involves the destruction of the normal social and relationship bonds which they have built with their community.
Drugs and alcohol distort the thinking, thus distorting the individual into believing that what they are doing is the new norm and will be considered behaviorally acceptable. This is, of course, not true, but there is a great deal to remember about how the mind is affected over a long period of time, and how it adapts to its new nutrition deficiencies and its new ways of perceiving the world.
The streets are filled with people who have chosen one alternative lifestyle or another. That is okay. The problem begins when the rules of the streets begin to overflow into the professional work environment. The theft that almost always comes from the need to continue this addiction becomes highly disjointed, both in the mind and in the social circles of the addict. There is a changing of perception as the addiction alters the mind. Eventually, what the addict is doing to the people around them is considered normal in their own eyes, though it is far from okay in the minds of everyone else.
Avoid this slow, gradual decay of the conscious responsibility. Bring employee drug testing to the workplace where you are. Make sure everyone is fit for duty. Make sure everyone passes their urine drug test or oral fluid drug test. Implement alcohol tests, like our Lifeloc FC10 breathalyser device. We provide all of the drug test equipment you will be needing in your efforts to prevent addiction theft in your jobsite. Just relax and let the equipment do its work. There is a way to almost completely keep this problem from your business.

Saliva drug tests are all the rage now, and our ToxSure saliva drug test is really excellent. Give us a call today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
