Public Health England and Business in the Community have published a toolkit aimed at helping employers tackle substance abuse, whether tobacco, alcohol, or drug abuse.

The toolkit sets out a number of steps employers can take to help their staff and combat substance abuse. These include:
- Leadership making a clear commitment and receive adequate training to tackle substance abuse
- Making reasonable adjustments for staff who are required to take time off work to deal with substance abuse
- Encouraging staff to consider whether their consumption is putting their health at risk.
