The following information can help you understand the SAP’s position in the process.

The Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) is a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.

A SAP represents the major decision point (and in some cases the only decision point) an employer may have in choosing whether or not to place an employee behind the steering wheel of a school bus, in the cockpit of a plane, at the helm of an oil tanker, at the throttle of a train, in the engineer compartment of a subway car, or at the emergency control valves of a natural gas pipeline.

Responsibilities of a Substance Abuse Professional:
  • Making a face-to-face clinical assessment and evaluation to determine what assistance is needed by the employee to resolve problems associated with alcohol and/or drug use;
  • Referring the employee to an appropriate education and/or treatment program;
  • Conducting a face-to-face follow-up evaluation to determine if the employee has actively participated in the education and/or treatment program and has demonstrated successful compliance with the initial assessment and evaluation recommendations;
  • Providing the DER with a follow-up drug and/or alcohol testing plan for the employee; and
  • Providing the employee and employer with recommendations for continuing education and/or treatment.

 

Please Note!  A Dept. of Transportation recognized Substance Abuse Professional is not an advocate for the employer or employee. The SAP’s function is to protect the public interest in safety by professionally evaluating the employee and recommending appropriate education/treatment, follow-up tests, and aftercare.
