Substance Abuse Professional Services
At Henderson Consulting & EAP Services, Gene’ Henderson is the Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) and provides the services required for employees that have positive drug and/or alcohol test results.
A SAP is a person who evaluates employees who have violated a Department of Transportation (DOT) drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.
As a SAP you represent the major decision point (and in some cases the only decision point) an employer may have in choosing whether or not to place an employee behind the steering wheel of a school bus, in the cockpit of a plane, at the helm of an oil tanker, at the throttle of a train, in the engineer compartment of a subway car, or at the emergency control valves of a natural gas pipeline. The SAP’s responsibility to the public is enormous!
As a SAP you are advocate for neither the employer nor the employee. Your function is to protect the public interest in safety by professionally evaluating the employee and recommending appropriate education and/or treatment, follow-up tests, and aftercare.
These same services are available to employees who do not fall under the DOT regulations, and are referred to as Substance Abuse Evaluations.
