It is true that despite a wealth of information available on the subject matter, there still remains vast challenges on preventing addiction or violence that leads to trauma. However, in reviewing the survey questions that were indicated, I observed that these questions focused more on alcoholism, rather than abusing drugs. Therefore, I suggest that since the topic on drugs, per se, is actually a widely encompassing topic, maybe you can still streamline the research on, say, the most common drugs that employees tend to abuse (prescription drugs? or illicit drugs?). Still, another comment is the fact that employees or employers could be very apprehensive to disclose drug use or abuse since this would affect their status in the work setting. As such, discreet questions that would encourage personnel to divulge confidential information on drug use or abuse should be developed to achieve the desired results.

The research topic is very interesting and the manner by which the survey questions were designed is just commendable. One of the first comments I would like to note is that although you stipulated that the objective of the study is to “understand the lived experience of being a foster child in the foster care system”, I would like to add this question – for what purpose? Why would you like to understand the lived experience of being a foster child? What outcome or implications would the gathered information serve? In addition, the survey questions were really very good.
