            Preventing Substance Abuse Begins with Knowledge

            FOR YOUR SAFETY...FOR YOUR LIFE

            Here at the Department of Transportation, we are strongly focused on protecting the safety of the traveling public.? We want to make sure that people whose jobs affect not only their own safety, but that of everyone else who travels or can be affected by transportation systems, are alert, able to exercise good judgment in potential emergency situations, and committed to compliance with safe practices and safety rules.? That is the reason why, for nearly 30 years, the Department has implemented a safety-oriented drug and alcohol testing program for safety-sensitive transportation workers.

            But, through our work in this program, we have become aware that preventing substance abuse is an imperative that reaches far beyond the transportation industry.? Substance abuse creates serious?effects across our society:? people die, families are devastated, livelihoods are lost.? The effects of substance abuse on transportation safety grow out of this more pervasive problem.

            Make no mistake: substance abuse affects your mind, body, and your future.? Whether you are at home, at work, in school, or just out and about, substance abuse poses a risk to you and those around you.? Whether you are an employee or an employer; a teenager, adult, parent or other caregiver; a family member or friend; an educator or health care professional, knowing about substance abuse is a good first step to preventing or dealing with?it.

            For this reason, we have compiled a list of resources -- mostly from Federal agencies -- that can help you learn about substance abuse and finding treatment; proper disposal of unwanted, unneeded or expired medication; workplace and prevention programs, facts about alcohol and drugs, and data and research on prevention practices. ?The list is not all-inclusive, but it's a good starting point for finding out what you can do to prevent or deal with substance abuse issues in your life and the lives of people you know.
