SRS’ affiliate network is comprised of clinical specialists in over 3,000 locations nationwide and in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam and Canada who have extensive experience in providing SAP Evaluations, Fitness for Duty Evaluations, Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM), Psychological Evaluations and Care Management. SRS continuously recruits Clinical Specialists and Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs) that meet all licensing and training and testing requirements according to the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Regulation 49 CFR Part 40.
Since its founding in 2003, SRS has routinely assisted TPAs, MROs and EAPs In providing an array of clinical services. To date, nearly 20,000 employees of 3,900 client companies have entrusted SRS in guiding them through the return to duty process.
Owned and operated by a seasoned healthcare recruiter, SRS has the expertise needed to recruit and retain clinical professionals who assist in determining compliance and fitness eligibility. SRS has a department solely dedicated to recruiting Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs) that meet the requirements of the Department of Transportation’s (DOT’s) regulations; psychologists who perform psychological assessments for fitness-for-duty; specifically trained clinical specialists that support critical incident workplace trauma and behavioral health clinicians that facilitate care management.
A crucial factor that sets SRS apart from others is our vigilance to the credentialing process. Prior to SRS utilizing any clinical professional all state licenses are verified with the appropriate issuing authority. Substance Abuse Professionals’ (SAPs) DOT required training, testing and requalification along with clinical specialists certifications are confirmed utilizing an internal software program created specifically for tracking and credentialing.
All clinical professionals are required to produce proof of current professional liability insurance with minimum limits of 1M/3M which is verified on a revolving basis.
When a client company contacts SRS with a need for a DOT substance abuse referral, SRS acts as that client’s DOT specified “Service Agent” absorbing the burden of providing a list of DOT qualified Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs) directly to the applicant/employee. Acting as the client’s “Service Agent”, SRS supplies the applicant/employee with a list of names, addresses and phone numbers of readily available DOT qualified Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs) within the applicant/employee’s geographic area. Upon enrollment, SRS assigns a care coordinator who provides care management monitoring through return to duty.
SRS’ non-regulated substance abuse program closely mirrors the DOT’s process. Upon enrollment, SRS assigns a care coordinator who will also provide care management monitoring.
When a client company is in need of a fitness for duty or psychological evaluation, critical incident stress management (CISM), or independent care management SRS will facilitate connection with an affiliate provider anywhere throughout the US, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam and Canada.
WHY YOUR CLIENT COMPANIES NEED SRS
In the workplace, the problems of substance abusers become a threat to safety and productivity. They increase risks of accidents, lower productivity, raise insurance costs, and reduce profits. More than 70 percent of substance abusers hold jobs; one worker in four, ages 18 to 34, used drugs in the past year; and one worker in three knows of drug sales in the workplace. Americans consume 60 percent of the world’s production of illegal drugs: 23 million use marijuana at least four times a week; 18 million abuse alcohol; 6 million regularly use cocaine; and 2 million use heroin.* Companies that employ safety-sensitive employees and are regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT) must have a substance abuse policy that identifies SAPs (Substance Abuse Professionals) or an assigned SAP referral service agent. Many non-regulated companies with choose to implement substance abuse policies and utilize substance abuse specialists to make recommendations for rehabilitation.
