FELIX JUNIOR, Itamar José; SCHLINDWEIN, Vanderléia de Lurdes Dal Castel  e  CALHEIROS, Paulo Renato Vitória. The relationship between drug use and work: a literature PSI review. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp. 104-122. ISSN 1808-4281.

The theories associated to the topic of "Mental Health and Work" have given the necessary importance to the fact that diseases, psychic pain and other social problems have become more and more evident due to the setbacks of work, even though work has passed through technologic and managerial transformations to improve the workers' welfare. This article aimed to develop a literature review of studies that approach the use of psychoactive substances by workers. As such, Pepsic, Scielo, Scopus and Web of Science databases were consulted. 18 articles were found, out of which the 14 that complied with the proposed goals, were analysed. It was observed that the use of psychoactive substances by workers inside workplaces has increased. The studies about the topic demonstrate that the relation between work and the use of psychoactive substances is disguised by fear and stigmatization inside the institutions. This situation makes the access to treatment more difficult or even impossible. The authors suggest that prevention campaigns be held inside companies and institutions as well as interventions or specialized treatment for this population.
