This guide aims to provide practical advice to medical professionals to help you to understand and support working patients and employers to address alcohol and illicit drug use by people that work.

This guidance was first published in 2014 and supplements the work published by the Board of Science on alcohol and the use of illicit drugs, and aims to provide practical advice to medical professionals to help them understand and support working patients and employers to address the use of alcohol and illicit drugs by people who work. This second edition was updated and chapter 9 added in response to a Department for Work and Pensions review into how best to support benefit claimants with addictions and potentially treatable conditions back into work. While aimed primarily at medical professionals, this booklet may also assist other health care professionals, managers, human resources specialists and employee representatives.
