DOT Substance Abuse Evaluations

Connecticut Counseling & Wellness (formerly the Counseling Center of Waterbury) is one of the few counseling agencies in Connecticut that has a licensed therapist who possesses the United States Department of Transportation’s Substance Abuse Professional credential, and are therefore able to provide DOT substance abuse evaluations. If you’re an employer or employee that is regulated by one of the six agencies governed by the US DOT there are strict return-to-duty guidelines that must be followed for any employee who tests positive for drugs or alcohol while working in a safety-sensitive position.

Specifically encompassed in Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 40, the Office of Drug & Alcohol Policy & Compliance (ODAPC) publishes, implements and provides authoritative interpretations of these regulations.  It is the responsibility of the Designated Employer Representative (DER) to facilitate the compliance of these regulations for your organization.

Connecticut Counseling & Wellness provides accurate and timely implementation of the substance abuse evaluation, makes appropriate treatment recommendations, determinacy of compliance or non-compliance, and follow-up testing schedules. With over 10 years of experience working with employers and employees covered by DOT regulations our mission is to insure that you and your employees are in full compliance with all DOT/SAP rules & regulations. Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments and/or questions.

Andrea Becker-Abbott and Jerry Marcil are qualified SAPs, providing DOT and SAP-required evaluations.
