The UNC Health Care Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program offers a service for those in need of education on the consequences of the abuse of alcohol and other drugs. Our program is an intense learning experience that addresses the basic dynamics of substance use, abuse, and dependence. Work-place safety and negative effects of social and occupational functioning are stressed. The dynamics of dysfunctional family relationships are presented.
Those who will benefit from this intensive educational program include:
Employees Who . . .
- have tested positive on a random urine drug screen.

- are concerned about a loved one and are requesting assistance.
- need to develop a better understanding of the dynamics of addiction and recovery.
