SAP - DOT Services


Substance Abuse Professional Services

As an experienced psychotherapist in treatment of substance abuse related disorders, Dr. Dina Nevo is able to offer her services as fully-trained and certified Substance Abuse Professional (SAP).

What is an SAP?

Safety-sensitive employees in the transportation industry are subject to federal drug and alcohol use and testing regulations under the federal Department of Transportation (DOT). An employee who violates these regulations must be immediately removed from safety-sensitive functions, and he/she may not be returned to any safety-sensitive functions in the transportation industry until and unless he/she successfully completes a DOT return-to-duty process.

The service agent who is responsible for overseeing this process is a Substance Abuse Professional, or a SAP. DOT's requirements for SAP credentials and training are very specific. A drug counselor, or therapist, or mental health counselor, or any other mental health professional who does not meet these qualifications and training cannot provide SAP services. All SAPs are required to have basic knowledge in specified areas, to successfully complete a comprehensive SAP training, and to satisfactorily complete a SAP exam.


Whenever an employer or an EAP provides Dr. Nevo's name as an ASAP, it is always a good idea to first contact her to find out if she is available and ready to provide SAP services. As the employer or the EAP, you are responsible for providing reliable information to the employee. If you learn that a SAP is on vacation for two weeks, you will probably want to identify another qualified SAP. To not do so would be to cause a serious delay for the employee. For these reasons you should always confirm availability with Dr. Nevo's office.
