This evaluation is for employees seeking assessment, treatment planning and follow up evaluation to successfully return to their safety sensitive job after indications of alcohol or drug use.  Any employee covered under the rules of the United States Department of Transportation guidelines 49 CFR Part 40 may be subject to drug and alcohol screens for a variety of reasons including pre-employment testing, reasonable suspicion testing, pre-access testing, post-accident testing, and random testing.  Any employee testing positive for alcohol or a controlled substance must seek an evaluation by a qualified SAP.  The SAP evaluation consists of a verbal interview and other standardized assessments to determine if the employee has a substance abuse or dependence problem and if so, what type of treatment or other services may be appropriate to address the problem.  DOT regulations require a minimum recommendation for some level of substance abuse education or treatment for each case.  At the time of the first interview, an appointment is set for a follow-up evaluation.  The SAP evaluator makes treatment and/or education recommendations to the employee and employer and follows the employee through the time the employee is ready to return to work. A second evaluation is performed prior to the employee’s returning to work to determine if they have completed the requirements of the initial evaluation.  A Notice of Compliance or a Notice of non-compliance is then sent to the employer. Notices of Compliance include a schedule for any required follow-up drug testing. Employees are required to complete the entire SAP evaluation process with their initial SAP evaluator. Call for an appointment.

Psychiatric Evaluation

Psychiatric evaluation is performed by a medical doctor and is defined as a systematic evaluation of the causes, the symptoms, the course and the consequences of a psychiatric disorder in order to formulate a diagnosis and a treatment plan, and to answer any questions the patient or referring specialist may have. The main components of a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation are the patient verbal interview and observations of the patient’s behavior. The comprehensiveness of the psychiatric evaluation is affected by contextual, patient-related and situational factors.  In the psychiatric diagnosis a distinction is made between the diagnostic classification (according to the DSM-V-classification) and a structural diagnosis. The sequence of the elements of the psychiatric evaluation is based on medical tradition.  In the mental-status examination all objective and subjective psychiatric symptoms are systematically reviewed. The grouping of the symptoms is based upon the classical division of mental functions into cognitive, affective and cognitive functions. Call for an appointment.
