Substance abuse threatens the performance, growth and profitability of all categories and levels of government, commerce and industry and thus the economy of South Africa at large. Public and private enterprises generally recognise that being alcohol-free helps prevent catastrophes, but the same can probably not be said about drug abuse. Employers and employees need to understand that a drug-free workplace can lead to superior customer service, higher employee morale, increased productivity, reduced staffing costs and even reductions in employee theft. The management of employee substance abuse should be a fundamental component of any organisation’s occupational health, safety and environmental risk management. However, South Africa lags behind international best practice.

Employee Wellness Consulting
The mental well-being of employees is a subject of fundamental importance to all businesses, companies and public services. Leading organisations have become increasingly more aware that mental illness, substance abuse and other employee behaviour problems have a negative impact on the corporate self-interest. The response by many companies both here and overseas has been to initiate employee mental “wellness” programmes – this approach defines what U-ACT offers on a consulting basis. U-ACT designs and implements onsite employee wellness programmes in small, medium and large size companies. We do this through various individual and group awareness programmes.
