(Substance Abuse Professionals)

The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires those who perform safety sensitive duties to undergo a randomized drug screening process, a stressful procedure for those individuals who use substances. At Liv Associates, we recognize the hardships associated with being removed from duty and the urgency to return to work. With your needs and worries in consideration, we have a trained Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) who provides DOT compliant assessments within a safe and judgment free environment. We have the resources available to make this a seamless process, as you strive to return to work.


Once you’ve made the vital decision to meet with a trained SAP, it’s important to know what to expect, as the following is essential in your transition back to your safety sensitive responsibilities.




At Liv Associates we understand the painful consequences of being removed from work due to substance use and misuse, and the courage it takes to reach out for help. Please feel free to contact us to answer any further questions regarding the challenges you’re facing.
