Many employers in Crawford County tell us they struggle with finding workers to fill the many jobs they have available, and with turnover and retention of their current employees. Much of that is because people are failing drug tests-- whether tested pre-employment or randomly during their time on payroll.
Prescription drug abuse can ruin the lives of even your most reliable and productive workers!
Many local employers have policies that, if you come to them before you fail a drug test, they can work something out to help you get help and keep your job! Talk to your employer if you have a problem!
Community leaders we know who also serve local churches include Pastor Mike Corwin at Bucyrus Methodist Church and Pastor JC Church of Victory in Truth Ministries. They are always available to help either provide guidance or refer you to the type of guidance that is right for you. It's a start in the right direction!

“It’s best to come to the table honestly—spill the beans upfront. Don’t lie on your application—we have zero tolerance for that. If you fail a drug test, you’re fired. If you come to us before that happens, we are willing to listen and try to work with you to get you help and, based on your success, keep your job.”
“Most employers I know test pre-employment, post-accident, and randomly or on suspicion. Every Crawford County employer should do this—compared to the costs that come from turnover, the cost of implementing a thorough and consistent drug screens are nothing. The key is to have a policy that NO ONE is exempt—not even the CEO.”
Zero Tolerance in Crawford County (for the companies who have this policy) means: if you test positive for illegal drugs without a valid prescription, you’re fired. If you have a problem with drugs, and you value your job, your best option is to talk to your employer before it’s too late!
Aside from working with schools, Crawford County law enforcement officers also work with employers!
