Some Federal agencies, such as the Department of Transportation (DOT), have specific drug-free program regulations governing safety and security which require drug and alcohol testing. In such cases, companies must develop and enforce policies which meet very specific requirements. Croft Consultants has been developing DOT compliant policies and support programs to assist companies in implementing workplace drug testing since the inception of the Federal drug program regulations.

In addition to writing your company’s drug and alcohol policy, Croft Consultants will manage your entire substance abuse program and assist you in each stage of its implementation.

Depending on your company's needs, Croft Consultants will:

  • Write a comprehensive drug program guide--specific to your company--complete with all forms and information needed for DOT policy implementation
  • Conduct supervisory training and employee education
  • Provide federally compliant random draws and data management of required random testing
  • Set up on-site and nationwide collections as needed
  • Provide SAMHSA certified laboratory drug and alcohol testing
  • Review all test results with a professional Medical Review Officer (MRO) when regulations require it
  • Provide referrals to a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) as required by regulation or upon request
  • Interpret federal regulations into layman's language and apprise clients of important changes
