The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) first published Alcohol and Drug Testing Rules for safety-sensitive transportation workers in 1994. The rules identify Certified Employee Assistance Professionals (CEAPs), and five other types of professionals, as eligible to carry out the functions of a substance abuse professional (SAP) if the professional meets two other criteria provided in the rules. The SAP evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.

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.

A DOT Qualified Substance Abuse Professionalmust be one of the following:

  • A licensed physician (Doctor of Medicine or Osteopathy)

  • A licensed or certified social worker

  • A licensed or certified psychologist

  • A licensed or certified employee assistance professional

  • A state-licensed or certified marriage and family therapist  

  • An alcohol and drug abuse counselor  certified by NAADAC (National Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors Certification Commission) or by ICRC (International Certification Reciprocity Consortium/Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse. 

The DOT regulations also require that SAPs complete qualifying training and pass a nationally recognized examination.  This Provider is listed in the EAP-SAP National Directory.
