Employee Awareness Program


Are your employees having too many absent days from alcohol abuse? You’re not alone. This is a worldwide problem that affects every business; police/fire departments, hospital employees, doctors and nurses, schools, attorneys, town employees, and even our military servicemen and women. 
The program is designed to help the substance abusers in your employment come to realize the full effect of their addiction on the whole family and/or marriages, depression, health issues, and the possibility of losing their jobs. It’s aimed to reduce turnover and absenteeism and give back a higher employee productivity in their position within the company. 
The talk is geared to help substance abusers identify and resolve issues facing their troubled lives in and out of the workplace. The impact of employees struggling with alcohol and drug abuse have to deal with a wide range of issues confronting workers today. Thehour-long talk is customized to your unique hours of business during the day (7am-5pm). This program will be presented to your employees struggling with their addiction. If a client wants an hour for those working other shifts to have the presentation on the same day, a $500 deduction will be given on the second.  Prices will differ by distance and out of state travel. 

Instructor: Alberta Sequeira is a professional speaker who shares her experience reaching out to numerous substance abusers and family members with the dangers of the alcoholic and drug addict’s habit and actions.
