Following the treatment, the SAP evaluator must obtain information from the education and/or treatment program. The SAP will then conduct a face-to-face clinical interview with the employee to discuss the education and/or treatment effort, behavioral changes, and plans for continued treatment plan follow through as well as return-to-duty and follow-up testing issues.
At this point, one of two things is possible: The SAP can determine that the employee has demonstrated successful compliance or that the employee has not done so.
The SAP must present the employer a plan for follow-up testing. The SAP can re-evaluate the plan at any time and terminate the plan following its first year if all the required tests for the first year were completed. Testing is random and supervised and can last up to 60 months. The SAP will provide the employer with the recommended number of tests and the frequency of the tests.
