AbstractThe purpose of this study was to explore flight attendants experiences with the Flight Attendant Drug and Alcohol Program (FADAP) with a focus on workplace outcomes from a national sample. The researchers surveyed 216 flight attendants who participated in FADAP and subsequently returned to work. The researchers then conducted in-depth interviews with a sub-sample of these flight attendants (N=12) who in addition to completing treatment through FADAP, had returned to work for at least 6 months. Results suggest that participation in FADAP plays an important role in helping flight attendants enter and sustain recovery from alcohol and other drugs (AOD). This study helped shape a new program management system that FADAP uses today to track workplace outcomes related to program participation.
