Drugs Don’t Work Certification

Tanner Health System has been certified as a Drugs Don't Work (DDW) workplace by the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation. This designation helps to lower worker’s compensation insurance costs and requires annual training in addition to offering employee assistance with substance abuse issues.

While Tanner’s Drug-free Workplace designation is new, Tanner’s commitment to helping its team members and their families overcome substance abuse is not.

Tanner has a long history of offering an employee assistance program, recently rebranded as Engage EAP. Tanner’s Engage EAP offers team members a variety of resources, including confidential counseling to help those impacted by substance abuse. Services are offered at no cost to all Tanner employees and their dependents. For more information about Engage EAP, visit www.engageEAP.org or call 770.834.8327.

The goal of DDW is to create healthy communities in which to live and work through the establishment of drug-free work places utilizing the guidelines for certification set forth by Georgia law, the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation and the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988.

The primary purpose of DDW in Georgia has been to assist businesses in the development of comprehensive drug-free workplace programs, to supply free and discounted drug-free workplace services, and to educate working parents on how to talk to their children about drugs.
