Each DOT/SAP evaluation must be conducted fact to face.  The cost of the evaluation includes assessment tools, education/treatment recommendations, treatment monitoring, follow-up assessment and all compliance reporting.  DOT-covered employees are typically seen within 24 hours for their convenience.  Call 877-752-8811 today for your appointment.

 When an employee has a positive test or refuses to be tested or has one of DOT’s other violations, DOT requires the employer to immediately remove that employee from safety-sensitive functions.  The employee must either find a job outside of the transportation industry or complete the DOT Return to Duty Process.

The return-to-duty process requires involvement of a qualified and trained SAP.   (Substance Abuse Professional)

The SAP must conduct a face-to-face clinical evaluation of the employee and make recommendations for treatment and/or education.

The SAP must send a report to the employer, specifying the recommendation for treatment and/or education and must then monitor the employee’s progress.

The SAP must also re-evaluate the employee and determine if he is compliant.  Documentation of the compliance is then sent to the employer who may choose to offer the employee a Return to Duty test.


The SAP’s role in the entire Return to Duty process can be found HERE in CFR Part 40.
