Tools for employers

Together Arkansas online course

This five-module course (13-16 min. per module) gives an overview of the legal and operational issues an employer must consider in dealing with an employee’s use of opioids and other substances. The modules include best practices around how, when and why to drug test; how to handle a situation if the employee confesses or is discovered to be using harmful substances; and much more. Although each module contains valuable information, you do not have to watch them in order or in their entirety.

Thank you for joining Together Arkansas.
