    You did the right thing. Sometimes it takes a moment like that to wake someone up to a problem.

    Not only were you protecting your clients, but you mayhave actually helped your friend ether they see it or not.

    Definitely did the right thing! Sometimes people need help, and that's fine. But showing up to work drunk or high is not acceptable no matter what your role is. I'd be horrified if one of my loved ones was being taken care of by someone that was drunk.
    Not to mention imagine if something happened and she was to blame? She's been saved from herself in this instance I think.

    the consequences of NOT doing someting, out weigh the risk of a broken friendship/ co worker relationship.

    you definitely made the right choice.,

    At least you told the person who is next in command, now if there is fall out at work because of it, there will be a record of why.

    You did the right thing, especially considering where you work!! Don't feel bad lovely because It needed to be done and you're actually pretty courageous for doing it.

    You absolutely did the right thing. You gave her a chance to walk away and they didn't take it. Don't feel guilty.

    Faaaaaark... That's bad form on your colleague's point! You absolutely did the right thing!

    Where I work, we get randomly drug and alcohol tested, by the regulatory authority, and our employer. You have the option to self test, and go home if you're unfit for work.

    If there had been an incident, and your colleague was working with a client, the consequences could have been horrific!

    Huge hugs, that would have been a horrible position to be in. Hopefully they get referred on to get some help.
