A substance abuse professional, or SAP is defined by the department of Transportation as a person who evaluates employees who have violated DOT drug and alcohol testing regulations in order to make recommendations for the course of treatment or education, follow-up testing and aftercare.
SAP’s must be a licensed physician, social worker, psychologist, or otherwise licensed and certified therapist or counselor. Their duty is to protect the public interest and ensure that drives who go through the return-to-duty process are fit to return.8
Employees who perform safety-sensitive functions in the transportation industry are responsible for providing a safe work environment for their co-workers and the millions of people who travel in a variety of ways throughout the nation. In order to ensure a safe work environment, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has established work rules, including rules on drug use and alcohol misuse.
Our qualified Substance Abuse Professional is trained to complete evaluations for employees in safety sensitive positions regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT). We are committed to provide SAP services under the guidelines of the Federal Department of Transportation. According to the U.S DOT, when testing positive or refusing to test, you are prohibited from performing any safety-sensitive duties under any DOT-regulated employer until you have seen a Substance Abuse Professional and completed the return-to-duty process.

In addition, Mr. Collins’ recommendation about appropriate education and/or treatment program is dependent on your specific needs, which includes the presence of and, if identified, severity of your drug or alcohol problem. Mr. Collins will identify the level of drug and/or alcohol use in order to make the recommendation about education and/or treatment.
