The Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) is a clinician who evaluates employees that have violated a D.O.T. drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare, if needed.
Our Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs) are D.O.T. Qualified with the knowledge and clinical experience in the diagnosis and treatment of alcohol and controlled substance-related disorders. They are credentialed and must pass an exam to be certified as a Substance Abuse Professional. Nationally-certified by (NAADAC) National Association of Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Counselors Certification Commission. With over 15 years of experience, we have the required training to perform D.O.T. SAP Return-to-Duty process.
SAPS UNLIMITED will provide your Designated Employer Representative (DER) or TPA/Consortium a follow-up testing plan and continuing education and/or treatment for you. The SAP will also monitor the employee throughout the entire process until the employee is ready to return to duty.
Note: Once the employee begins the process with one SAP, employee must remain with the same SAP throughout the entire process.
