Substance Abuse Professionals (SAP)
Specifically, an SAP evaluates workers who have violated a US Department of Transportation (DOT) drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and continuing care. These assessments are face-to-face clinical evaluations that determine what level of assistance the employee needs in resolving problems associated with alcohol or prohibited drug use. This may serve as a referral source to assist the employee’s entry into an acceptable program. The follow-up evaluation will determine if the employee has demonstrated successful compliance with recommendations of the initial evaluation and has made appropriate clinical progress sufficient to return to duty. The evaluator will also provide the employee and employer will recommendations for continuing care.
We also offer clinical evaluations for workers who have violated a US Department of Transportation (DOT) drug and alcohol program regulation and will make recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and continuing care. This may also serve as a referral source to assist you in your entry into an acceptable program.

Your doctor may refer you for a Senior Evaluation for Stroke, Heart Issues, Cerebral Palsy (CP), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Amputations, Traumatic brain injury, or a number of other conditions.
