Substance Abuse Professionals

The U.S Department of Transportation requires specialized training for all Substance Abuse Professionals conducting Alcohol and Drug evaluations for employees in safety-sensitive positions.


Our qualified Substance Abuse Professional is trained to complete evaluations for employees in safety sensitive positions regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT). We are committed to providing SAP services under the guidelines of the Federal Department of Transportation. According to the U.S DOT, when testing positive or refusing to test, you are prohibited from performing any safety-sensitive duties under any DOT-regulated employer until you have seen a Substance Abuse Professional and completed the return-to-duty process.


Our Substance Abuse Professional is qualified and has successfully completed 12-hours of specialized training, specific to DOT guidelines.​ To be in compliance with DOT guidelines, only a SAP can evaluate you. Our SAPs meet all standards for the Department of Transportation (DOT).


Our Certified Substance Abuse Professional, Deleshia Williams, MSW, LCSW, CSAC, MAC, SAP, has been trained and is experienced in administering the regulations required by the DOT for employees who have tested positive for prohibited substances.
