AKAN's objective is to prevent drug and alcohol abuse in Norwegian workplaces and also to see to it that employees with abuse problems get help.
AKAN's activities are based on collaboration between employers and employees. A defined drug and alcohol policy and clear guidelines for dealing with drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace are important elements in AKAN's activities.
So far, mostly large enterprises have established an AKAN system. However, a drug and alcohol policy is also important for small and medium-sized firms. This leaflet has been produced to show how the AKAN system can be adapted for smaller firms.
