Abstract (Summary)

The qualitative narrative research study analyzed the perceived effects of policy-writing program procedure intervention for workplace substance abuse and self-efficacy of 20 policy writers in community organizations. The narrative assessment targeted how and why policy-writing program format operated and data collected used one-on-one descriptive interpretations of the daily experiences of policy writers. Analyzing data through a domain of self-efficacy intimates a concurrence of policy writer’s notions. Implication of the research study was equating policy-writing programs to a holistic model designed to encounter intervention for workplace substance abuse. Implication for analyzing policy-writing program assessment tailored non-traditional approach to customized evaluations that addressed issues of intervention procedures for workplace substance abuse. The specific problem targeted the lack of policy writer’s experience addressing workplace substance abuse intervention in policy-writing procedures. The purpose of the research was to discover a more effective approach for policy-writing leaders to target workplace intervention procedures for addictive behavior that causes organizations significant loss of productivity. The outcome of the research indicated that policy-writing programs encouraged content to reflect self-efficacy experiences of policy writers and contribution of each cohort. Encouraging policy writers to assess intervention procedures and developing the policy-writing process around this assessment may prove a good suggestion for addressing future research study on policy-writing procedures for workplace substance abuse. Recommendations for future research would be improve the policy-writing program for workplace substance abuse addressing philosophical foundations, program goals, evaluating policy-writing process, and analyzing the results.
