Bassett stated: "The final overdose data for 2016 confirm what we have feared – drug overdose deaths have reached a record high and are increasing citywide as the opioid epidemic continues to affect every community."

Drug Testing in the Workplace
Many New York companies mandate all candidates for employment and all present companies, under specific conditions, to be tested for the existence of drugs and/or alcohol as part of the business's procedure banning drug or alcohol use. The use and abuse of drugs has a damaging effect on the output, attendance and well-being of a workforce. A worker disrupts a Drug-Free Workplace Program by testing positive in an established test for drugs. Any "reasonable suspicion" must be grounded upon detailed, dependable surveillance that the administrator can communicate regarding the appearance, conduct, speech or body aroma of the employee.
A previous Governor of New York once stated that "If you think it is not happening in your workplace, you are wrong. Alcohol and substance misuse are severe problems facing our workforce today. It diminishes the quality of services and increases their costs. At the same time, the personal toll to individuals, families and our communities is staggering. We must be vigilant to protect the safety and welfare of the public we serve and our fellow employees. I ask each of you to join with me to keep New York State a drug and alcohol-free workplace."
Drug use and abuse can cost a company millions of dollars in workers' compensation claims. It is important to have a drug-free workplace policy in effect to not only screen employees, prior to being hired, but to ensure the safety and productivity of your workforce.
