Serving Employers and Employees in Bexar County, Guadalupe County, and Comal County, Texas and surrounding communities

At Cornerstone Recovery Coaching we have an "Easy-to-Follow" program with a qualified Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) in the DOT Drug and Alcohol testing program which meets the SAP qualification requirements; 

Under Rule #49 CFR §§ 40. 291, 40.293, 40.301


Substance Abuse Professionals evaluate employees who have violated a DOT Drug and Alcohol Program Regulation and make recommendations concerning Education, Treatment, Follow-Up Testing, and Aftercare if deemed necessary.  Here at Cornerstone Recovery Coaching we personally guide you through this complicated maze to ensure all requirements are met as swiftly and affordably as possible. 

When DOT Drug & Alcohol Rules are violated; [e.g. test positive, or refuse a test,] employers are required to immediately remove employees from performing safety-sensitive functions and not permit the employee to return to DOT regulated safety-sensitive functions until the employee has:

1.  Undergone an evaluation by a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP)

     [employers must provide you a list of SAPs in your area even if the

     employer fired you or did not hire you]

2.  Successfully completed any course, counseling or treatment prescribed

     by the SAP prior to returning to service;

3.  Undergone a follow up evaluation by the same SAP to determine your

     compliance with their recommendations and any after care recommendations.

4.  Provide a breath and/or urine specimen that tests negative for drugs

     and/or alcohol prior to returning to DOT regulated safety-sensitive
