This is a historical photo of the original Thundering Hundred Background for Photo Patricia Herlihy Ph.D., RN December 2016 The Comprehensive Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Prevention Treatment and Rehabilitation Act (the Hughes Act) was passed in the U.S. Congress in 1970. The Hughes Act was, possibly, the greatest single impetus toward the development of occupational alcoholism programs and today's EAPs. This law established the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) as a part of the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (USDHHS). The Hughes Act and the NIAAA developed guidelines to combat alcohol problems in both the public and private sectors. Around this period of time NIAAA coined the term EAP (Employee Assistance Program. To promote EAPs, the NIAAA funded two occupational program consultants (OPCs) in each state. Each OPC was charged with the responsibility of helping employers develop EAPs throughout their designated geographical area. These OPCs who had their initial training in Pinehurst, North Carolina in the summer 1972 were dubbed the ‘Thundering 100’ - (Photo)
