The sample of drug addicted people who have visited counselor’s offices and receive treatment is but a small number of the total number of people who suffer from this. The problem with being an addict is similar to keeping still on a mud slide. You may dig your fingers and toes into the slide, you may try with all of your might to gain traction, but the whole time you are quickly and decidedly oozing down the slide, whether you want to or not.
For non-addicts, it is very easy to gain traction on their lives. They are able to look at the situation, determine where it would be best to dig in their heels, and then do so, with force and assertion.
To live as an addict does, all the resources, all the savings, and all of the abilities to take control of their lives are used up every day, sometimes every hour. They cannot hold onto things, because they do not know how to protect what they value or how to let go of what they dislike. Everything seems backward in their world than it is in the worlds of non-addicts…and this is true.
Many people seek to control their companies by enforcing employee drug testing, but the truth is that you can only control the business operations themselves. You cannot control the people working in your company. Employee drug testing is meant to be an evaluative procedure, not some sort of enforcement. Screening tests cannot prevent your workers from abusing substances. They can only tell you if anyone is doing so.
