Employee Education Program

Are your employees having too many absent days from alcohol abuse? You’re not alone. This is a worldwide problem that affects every business; police/fire departments, hospital employees, schools, town employees, and even our military servicemen and women.
The program is designed to help the substance abusers in your employment come to realize the full effect of their addiction on the whole family and/or marriages, depression, health issues, and the possibility of losing their jobs. It’s aimed to reduce turnover and absenteeism and give back a higher employee productivity in their position within the company.
The talk is geared to help substance abusers identify and resolve issues facing their troubled lives in and out of the workplace. The impact of employees struggling with alcohol and drug abuse have to deal with a wide range of issues confronting workers today.
The hour-long talk is customized to your unique hours of business during the day (7am-5pm). This program will be presented to your employees struggling with their addiction. If a client wants a second hour for those working other shifts to have the presentation on the same day, a $100 deduction will be given.
The Agreement for the Employee Education Program can be reviewed below. Prices to be quoted by distance and out of state travel will differ.
Instructor: Alberta Sequeira is not a licensed doctor giving medical advice or a professional, trained counselor but an ordinary woman who shares her experience with reaching out to substance abusers and family members with the dangers of the alcoholic and drug addict’s habit and actions. Alberta lost her husband, Richard Lopes, and her daughter, Lori Cahill, of North Dighton, Massachusetts from their addiction to alcohol and drug abuse. Richard Lopes was the brother of Gilbert (Sonny) Lopes, who was the owner of Lopes Construction on Winthrop Street in Taunton, MA.
She has presented programs to halfway homes, substance abuse rehabilitation centers, court-ordered programs, jails, community colleges, universities, and to the public. Ms. Sequeira’s outlook is that some alcoholics relate to a speaker who has had experienced confronting the confusion, fear, enabling, and abuse in the family.

1. Family Background with Alcohol Abuse
2. Conflicts within the family
3. Drinking Friends/Accidents/Life Out-of-Control
4. Getting out of Denial
5. Fear and Confusion for the Children
6. The Dangers of Black Outs and Abusive Behavior

Agreement for Employee Education Program 

AGREEMENT: (Client) agrees to compensate Alberta H. Sequeira (Instructor) a seminar fee of $500 in advance for an hour-long presentation. Payment by company check or mail order, sent to Alberta Sequeira two weeks before the event date. This fee is exclusive of airfare, travel, and hotel accommodations (Reputable). Travel expenses are an additional charge. A location that is in a 25-mile radius will be at no travel charge. Out of state seminars will be negotiated on price case by case basis. If a client cancels the program for any reason within one week of the scheduled date, no refund will be provided, although, another date can be rescheduled. Alberta H. Sequeira grants the client the right to videotape all parts of the seminar presentation to use for educational or marketing purposes. This tape can’t be sold outside of the event to other locations. If a client chooses to make such tapes, they shall provide a video master of any taped presentation to Alberta H. Sequeira within 10 days of the aforementioned event.

Alberta H. Sequeira will be available to autograph her books after the presentation. It would be helpful if the client could provide a person to assist Alberta Sequeira with the handling of her book sale (if she does not have her assistant) after her program, so that she is available to speak with the employees. Alberta Sequeira will arrive the day before your event, if it’s a long distant travel event or out-of-state so that no travel delay will interfere with the presentation. In the case of an unforeseen emergency (by Ms. Sequeira or Client) or travel delay (extreme bad weather, air flight cancelation) that prevents her from attending, she will hold the paid fee for a future date to be scheduled by the client.
