Substance Abuse Professional SAP
Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) evaluates individuals who have violated a D.O.T. drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations, education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare needed.

Substance Abuse Professional (SAP)ASSESSMENTS NEEDED FOR LEGAL purposes:
Many clients seek substance use disorder assessments because of court orders such as child custody or alcohol and drug charges.
Edmonton Counselling Services can provide that assessment for you. All court documents must be brought in for your appointment to deliver the type of evaluation the court requests.
A Qualified Substance Abuse Professional must provide D.O.T. (Department of Transportation) SAP assessments. Edmonton Counselling Services has Certified Substance Abuse Professionals.
An SAP assessment can only be provided by an S.A.P certified counsellor to be valid. Once you start with an S.A.P accredited counsellor, you must continue with that S.A.P. accredited counsellor.
Substance Abuse Professional D.O.T.
If you work in a safety-sensitive career such as a bus or truck driver, train conductor, pilot, heavy equipment operator, or any other job, the D.O.T regulated. In that case, the person is subject to random urine, alcohol, and drug testing. And if the person tested positive, he/ she must stand down from that safety-sensitive job until you have been cleared to return to duty by the S.A.P assigned to you.
The D.O.T. requires all S.A.Ps to register with the D.O.T. clearinghouse. All employees that test positive must report with the D.O.T. clearinghouse as well.

Only through a clear clinical judgment is the person seeking addiction treatment to obtain the best treatment level possible. D.O.T. Assessments: Department of Transportation mandated assessments can be done from Edmonton Counselling Services. Since January 1, 2004, D.O.T. assessments must be done by a Qualified Substance Abuse Professional (certified S.A.P).
