Iraq is Not The Only War Costing America Billions

What problem costs the American economy more than $100 billion every year?

What problem causes employers to incur a 300 percent increase in medical costs and benefits?

What problem is being addressed by large companies but neglected by small businesses?

The answer is substance abuse in the workplace, including alcohol abuse as well as illicit drug use.

And it's a bottom line issue that is only getting worse for our nation's small business owners.

Research shows that substance abusers are:

5 times more likely to file a workers' compensation claim.
2.5 times more likely to have lengthy absences from work.
3 times more likely to be late for work.
Likely to use 2.5 times more medical benefits, and
One-third less productive.

According to the Labor Department, five million of the country's estimated nine million employed substance abusers work for small companies.

This may well be a conservative estimate, as those workers most at risk for substance abuse are more likely to be employed by small, rather than large, firms.

For example, small companies hire a greater percentage of young personnel than do large businesses, and surveys show that in general, marijuana and cocaine abuse are more prevalent in this age group.

And the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) estimates that ...

And the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) estimates that one in every five employees ages 18-25 and one in every eight employees ages 26-34 uses drugs on the job.

So where do companies get their employees?

In many towns across America companies get new talent right out of high school or right out of college.

In either case these young adults fall into the 18-25 year old category.

And now we know that about one in every five of these employees use drugs on the job.

This has a major impact on any company and is the cause of untold destruction across our country and the world at large.

That is why Friends of Narconon has launched its new campaign.

We are asking each of you to reach out to your business associates and neighbors to help us handle this ever-increasing problem.

Simply tell someone you know about our program.

Let them know they can help keep our future workers from becoming drug addicts by ensuring we get proper drug education materials into all our schools.

Just give us their names and numbers and we will contact them on your behalf.

Better yet, talk to them yourself and tell them we will call them or have them call us.

The point is that by networking we can all make a difference and take back our workplace.

I don't know about you, but there is nothing worse than being forced to work around drug users in the workplace.

It's dangerous and you know that disaster is just waiting to happen.

As part of this campaign we have created a new game for us all to play.

It is a game where we all win.

Simply get 5 schools sponsored through your referrals and we will send an educators' kit to a school on your behalf, free of charge!

This game ends on November 1st 2007.

So open up your phone books, contact managers, email programs and all those little scraps of notes and send us your referrals!

By working together we can all make a difference in this ever-growing drug problem.

Call Donna Miller and sponsor some schools today! 1-800-882-6862

Sincerely,

Robert Hernandez
