D.O.T.Failed Drug Test

substance abuse evaluations

I tested positive so what should I do?Keep in mind that any employer doing a backgound check is likely to discover it. Hire Right has a drug and alcohol data base which has access to most testing labs. It is reported that Hire Right maintains records for 2500 motor carriers. It is important that individuals keep in mind that D.O.T. rules require that employers check with previous employers for drug and alcohol violations. Also keep in mind that employees can be fined for not telling or for falsifying information on an application. For non-DOT employers it is grounds for termination.The best policy is to be honest with your new employer and get a substance abuse evaluation asap.For additional information contact Robert W Harelson PsyD,SAP at http://www.dot-substanceabuseevaluations.com.
