The FSAP, in conjunction with Employment Services, periodically holds Drug-Free Schools and Communities trainings which educate employees on issues related to drugs and alcohol in the workplace, including spotting a substance abuse problem in oneself or in others, helping someone who has a drug or alcohol problem, and the University policy on drugs in the workplace.

Here at Georgetown University fingers are not pointed, instead, a helping hand is offered. We hope the below referenced information will prove to be beneficial to you, your family, and co-worker.
