“How do you make someone understand that they need help? There’s a lot of companies that drug test and a good percentage will fail the drug test and that’s obviously an indication there. Another way is people are either late to work or don’t show up or don’t call in and that may be a new pattern you didn’t see before.” –Gregory Silva
