DASA has been working with local councils and state government services, such as transport and fire and rescue, to implement efficient, cost effective and high quality drug and alcohol programmes for over ten years.
We understand that government bodies are complex organisations providing a diverse range of services. Waste management, parks maintenance, libraries, leisure centres/swimming pools and child care all require unique solutions when applying an organisation-wide drug and alcohol policy fairly and consistently. In addition, size and location often require innovative solutions to unique requirements.
We take the time to understand these unique requirements and we work with you to develop the right solution. Whether it be drug and alcohol policy, education or testing, our understanding, partnership approach and flexibility mean we can easily customise our service to meet the many and varied needs of government organisations.
Over many years working with councils and other government bodies, we know that a drug and alcohol programme is more likely to be effective if it includes the following four elements. These are critical to success and we work with you to ensure they are in place.
Effective education and training programme
A clear focus on health and safety rather than social intervention
Flexibility in the ability to test in any location at any time
A well-documented quality audited process which is compatible with the council’s other processes
DASA’s commitment to knowledge, partnership and results ensures we can assist in delivering a quality cost effective drug and alcohol programme.
