Professional Remodeler magazine is working on a feature about drug use in construction.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, almost 14% of construction workers have substance user disorder, many using illicit drugs on the job where routine, predictable tasks can make it seem more attractive. There are other reasons, too.
Please email me (dmorrison(at)sgcmail.com) if you have stories (your own or of co-workers) about opioid or prescription drug use on the job or after hours.
We need your help to round out the picture to help move the industry forward–safely and sustainably.
