What is a SAP?
A SAP is a qualified Substance Abuse Professional that performs mandated evaluations for employees who have violated the Department of Transportation (DOT) drug and alcohol program regulation. A SAP has completed the training and testing required by DOT.
What does a SAP do?
A SAP conducts a face to face assessment and clinical evaluation of the employee. The SAP will then recommend a course of education and/or treatment. The SAP serves as a referral source to assist the employee
with recommendations, case-management and intervention monitoring while you are in the program. The SAP will conduct face to face follow up sessions with the employee to determine compliance with recommendations. The SAP also develops a follow up testing plan for the employee and provides the employee and employer with recommendations for continuing care.
How long will it take?
The length of time necessary depends upon the specific intervention required. The objective is to return the employee to safety sensitive duty at the earliest date following successful completion of their assigned intervention.
