The Department of Transportation (DOT) regulation (49 CFR Part 40) defines the Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) as a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.
Our current SAP staff includes a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist.
HOW THE DOT-SAP PROCESS WORKS
1. A confirmed violation (most commonly tests positive for alcohol or illicit drugs), at that time the operator must stand down from the safety sensitive duties, and is not able to return to safety sensitive duties until they have been released or returned to duty by a qualified SAP.
2. The operator must contact 504-324-5648. or make appointment on line by clicking here) a qualified SAP and go in for a face-to-face substance abuse assessment (cost $350.00). At the end of the assessment the operator will leave with a recommendation for either drug/alcohol treatment or education. The DOT has a mandatory minimum recommendation of education, commonly called (in North Carolina) Alcohol Drug Education Training School (ADETS) 8-16 hours.
3. Complete the treatment or education and contact the SAP for a follow-up appointment.
4. Go to the SAP for the appointment, this is the Return to Duty appointment, after this appointment your employer (or last employer) will be sent a Return to Duty Letter (cost $350.00).
5. If you are a Commercial Driver in the state of North Carolina and your violation was against a CDL, you will need to go to the Department of Motor Vehicles and get you license reinstated.
6. Get a clean drug/alcohol, return to duty test. This test will be ordered by your employer, The return to duty test are directly observed, this is per UD DOT policy, in addition any follow up drug tests will be observed as well. The SAP must order a minimum of 6 random drug tests in the 1st year and can order additional drug testing for up to 5 years (60 months)
