The D.O.T. recognized "Substance Abuse Professional" . . .
Notice to Employers:
If you have an employee who has violated Federal DOT regulations (49CFR Part 40) and is in need of a qualified Substance
Abuse Professional (SAP), Alan Algee has met the qualifications of the DOT regulations. In order to qualify as a SAP, providers
must meet training and testing requirements outlined by DOT.
The U.S. Department of Transportation's
(DOT) primary safety objective regarding substance abuse is to prevent alcohol and other controlled substance abusers from
performing transportation safety sensitive functions. To assist in the process, the substance abuse professional (SAP) is
charged with duties important to the evaluation, referral and treatment of employees identified as being positive for alcohol
and/or controlled substances or who have refused to be tested.
Alan Algee offers SAP services to companies and
to individuals in the community on a fee-for-service basis. Clients can expect a comprehensive face-to-face assessment and
clinical evaluation to determine the level of care required and appropriate recommendations including referral to in-patient
or outpatient treatment programs, educational programs, self-help and/or community resources.
Alan Algee will also follow up to determine if the employee demonstrates successful compliance with the original
treatment recommendations and a written report will be issued to Medical Review Officer (MRO), Designated Employee Representative
(DER), or any other appropriately designated party. Alan Algee also provides consultation, recommendations and
follow up to company personnel as requested by the client.
In addition to the SAP services provided for those who
test positive under DOT guidelines, Alan Algee can provide mental health counseling and assessment services, individual and
couples therapy, and consultation services for residential treatment facilities.
