Critical Incidents Stress Debriefing

Critical incidents are traumatic events that cause powerful emotional reactions in people who are exposed to those events. The most stressful of these are the line of duty deaths, co-worker suicide, multiple event incidents, disaster or terrorism, delayed intervention and multi-casualty incidents and more, sadly.
CISD (Critical Incident Stress Debriefing) is designed to help people deal with workplace trauma incidents by returning back to “normal” as soon as possible. Normal is different for everyone, and it is not easy to quantify. Critical incidents raise stress levels dramatically in a short period of time and after treatment, a new normal is established, however, it is always higher than the old level. The purpose of the debriefing process is to establish or set the new normal stress levels as low as possible.

Brief Counseling Services

EAP counseling for individuals and families to assist in difficult times.  We are able to provide 6-12 brief sessions that include the assessment during the first appointment. Assessments and brief solution focused therapy to address issues from pre-marital, child/adolescent behavioral concerns, grief, family issues and substance abuse issues. Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) are employee benefits programs offered by many employers.  EAPs are intended to help employees deal with personal problems that might adversely impact their job performance, health, and well-being.  EAPs generally include short-term counseling and referral services for employees and their household members.  Supervisors may also refer employees (supervisor referral) based on the unacceptable performance of conduct issues. 

DOT- SAP (Department of Transportation- Substance Abuse Professional)

SAP Services
What is a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP)?
The Department of Transportation (DOT) regulation -- 49 CFR Part 40 -- defines the Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) as a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.
A SAP is an advocate for neither the employer nor the employee. His/her recommendations protect the public safety in the event that the employee returns to the performance of safety-sensitive functions.
A DOT recognized Substance Abuse Professional must be one of the following:
A licensed physician (Doctor of Medicine or Osteopathy)
A licensed or certified social worker
A licensed or certified psychologist
A licensed or certified employee assistance professional
A state-licensed or certified marriage and family therapist *
A certified or licensed alcohol and drug abuse counselor **
The DOT regulations also require that SAP’s complete the training and pass a nationally recognized examination. This program includes information on the nine required content areas as designated in DOT Section 281(c) of Part 40. Content areas include an overview of the DOT drug and alcohol testing program, the drug and alcohol testing rules, and key DOT drug testing requirements.
What does a SAP do?
The SAP's fundamental responsibility is to provide a comprehensive face-to-face assessment and clinical evaluation to determine what level of assistance the employee needs in resolving problems associated with alcohol use or prohibited drug use. The SAP then recommends a course of education and/or treatment with which the employee must demonstrate successful compliance prior to returning to DOT safety-sensitive duty. Treatment recommendations can include but are not limited to In-patient treatment, partial in-patient treatment, out-patient treatment, education programs, and aftercare. Education recommendations can include but are not limited to approved drug and alcohol education courses, self-help groups. Upon the determination of the best recommendation for assistance, the SAP will serve as a referral source to assist the employee's entry into an acceptable program.
Evaluations performed by non-qualified SAP will not be accepted by DOT and will delay your return to work. Fines may be imposed on any employer who uses a non-qualified SAP in the return-to-duty process
Your SAP must understand alcohol and drug regulations to these six industries.
