Hello
if you mean can employees engage in substance abuse but control it while on the job the answer would be no.

By definition substance abuse is the use of s substances inappropriately.
Inappropriately being defined as harmful use to health or as illegal use.
Either of these factors would not be an off the job problem only, and would not be something that could be controlled.
Therefore, it will affect the employee...as employee...regardless.

Answer is no.
