DOT Substance Abuse Professional
Pivot Employee Assistance Services has qualified Substance Abuse Professionals on staff. These individuals have met Department of Transportation revised standards through education and a proficiency examination. Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) evaluations, as required by the DOT, are a supplementary EAP service. In a SAP evaluation, a client is mandated to attend the appointment due to a violation of drug or alcohol regulations. The individual is evaluated to determine his or her need for treatment. If the counselor finds that treatment is required, the individual is mandated to complete the treatment and be evaluated again in person by the SAP prior to returning to work. The individual’s ability to return to work is based on compliance with the treatment plan. A SAP is an advocate for neither the employer nor the employee. His/her recommendations protect the public safety in the event that the employee returns to the performance of safety-sensitive functions.
Pivot Employee Assistance Services personnel provide on-site employee orientations. This is a great opportunity to learn about Pivot and its benefits to employees and family members.
