The Quantum SAP is an agent of either a client organization or an employee needing an evaluation to coordinate return to work. Our function is to evaluate those individuals who either fail a drug test or admit to an alcohol/drug problem to their employer. In addition to the evaluation, the SAP refers to appropriate treatment, monitors the employee’s compliance, and coordinates the employee’s return to work. SAP Responsibilities include:


  • Evaluation

  • Referral

  • Monitor Compliance

  • Follow-up Evaluation

  • Return to Work Coordination

If the Quantum SAP feels that the clearance from the treatment provider and follow-up evaluation indicate that the employee is ready to return to work, the employer is notified. This notification should also advise the employer how long (i.e., 1 - 5 years) to randomly drug test the employee after he/she returns to work. This recommendation can be based on the initial and follow-up evaluations, as well as information provided by the treatment facility. Also, once the employee is back to work, the SAP can modify the duration of the random drug testing.

The Quantum Institute also offers education programs for those individuals who need education as a component for return to work as determined by any SAP.
