"Treatment Providers and the Department of Transportation: Working Cooperatively with Substance Abuse Professionals"
Friday, March 6, 2015
Networking: 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM
Presentation: 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
The role of the treatment provider in a DOT referral is unique and unlike most clients that find themselves in treatment. The Department of Transportation has very clear expectations regarding the role of the treatment provider as well as those of other professionals involved when a DOT regulated employee tests positive for alcohol or other mood-altering chemicals in the workplace. The purpose of this presentation is to provide a brief introduction to assist in clarifying what to do when a call is received requesting services for a DOT mandated employee. By the end of this presentation, participants will know: what makes a referral a DOT mandate, the roles and responsibilities of the treatment provider in the DOT process, the roles and responsibilities of other professionals working with a DOT employee and how DOT employee mandates differ from other clients on your caseload.
