These resources include a policy statement on controlled substance use and alcohol misuse in the workplace, educational materials, employee assistance programs, information regarding rehabilitation and treatment programs, access to a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) for DOT violations, copies of DOT regulations (if your company falls under DOT guidelines), random testing instructions, and instructions for record keeping.
