Great Video!
Dated, but still great. (digging those glasses and clothes styles!)
It would be interesting to see if drug use has come down today. It seems like Meth and other drugs are so strong these day. It would be interesting to see an updated version of this.
I think that companies don’t offer this type of rehabilitation anymore. Most of them just get rid of you. It truly cost to much insurance wise.
I guess drugs in the workplace will always be a problem!
