Employees who have positive DOT alcohol or drug test cannot begin or return to safety-sensitive work until they have completed the two-part Substance Abuse Professional evaluation and are deemed to be in compliance with the SAP recommendations.
On staff, we have specialists trained in the use of Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) a highly effective specialized treatment protocol designed to effectively work with those impacted by trauma such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or other related issues. With EMDR dramatic results are common and participants are often restored to optimal functioning after just a few sessions.
