Unformatted text preview: Unemployment rates. It is hard to test for alcohol as it does not stay in a person’s system like other controlled substances. I located an article on Alcohol and unemployment I found this to be interesting. They say that Unemployment or underemployment leads to alcohol abuse. “Alcoholism is a big enough issue for many people, but it can become intolerable when a person is unemployed. In addition, going without a job can put non-alcoholics at risk of drinking too much. Even underemployment--taking on a low-paying job to make ends meet--may damage self-esteem enough to start someone drinking” (Bondigas, 2010). I believe if the program is to stay in effect they need to find a way to screen for alcohol also. The majority of people are going to turn to alcohol instead of drugs.
