Texas is reported to have over 400,000 people with a substance abuse disorder between 2014-2016, and another million struggling with alcohol abuse.

Methamphetamines and cocaine continue to be the leading drugs seized by Texas law enforcement. Authorities have seen a 103% increase in meth use since 2014, while alcohol was the cause for nearly 100,000 arrests and another 71,000 DUI convictions.

With the close proximity to the Mexican border, the flood of drugs coming into Texas is increasing, as is the potency of these drugs. Many employers in Texas set up drug test programs. There are no laws that prohibit employers from implementing a drug-free workplace program, along with drug testing for their employers.

Employers that do not set up a drug testing program have a higher job percentage of substance abusers in their work population. This can cause accidents on the job, turnover, theft and productivity issues, all of which will cost the company more money.
