I think I figured it out! First and foremost, I am a mother and a community member who, just like you, is very concerned about the crisis involving drug abuse. I won't just sit by why lives are lost, families are left to grieve and raise grandchildren, and businesses fail to optimize their bottom lines. I'm also a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor-Supervisor, Certified Employee Assistance Professional, and Substance Abuse Professional under 49 CFR Part 40 of the U.S. Department of Transportation. I have assessed hundreds of persons in violation of their companies' prohibitions on substance use at work; I've held the hands of loved ones who've lost a son or daughter to overdose. I've responded to companies where a co-worker's child died of an overdose. IT AFFECTS EVERYONE!

Strong compulsion for the drug brings one to the point of losing a good job and, as a clinician, I've seen what works in getting people drug-free and their lives back on track. NOW they can also support their family! Many small to mid-sized companies can't afford an EAP which is maybe more than a company actually needs. However, they still desire to hire that promising candidate or keep an employee, but they lack a mechanism with which to do so. Where do I send them? How do I know they did what they needed to do? 

 

The Company Assistance Program (CAP) offers the policy violator a Last Chance Agreement (LCA) for help. It is ONLY when the job is on the line that the employer finally gets their attention; the decision being: my drugs or my job? My drugs or my family? In 95% of my cases, they chose their job. Through the LCA, employees must attend CAP's three-hour "assess and refer" model of intervention whereby the policy violator is expertly evaluated by myself or a hand-picked Substance Abuse Professional in your area. Under my supervision, they must agree to abide by all terms of the LCA including recommendations; the employee will know that failure to do so will likely result in: no job. Through CAP's LCA protocol the chances are favorable for the employer to now have a drug-free employee. They will also have a safer workplace with a more focused staff spending less time and money on interviews, background checks, and drug tests!

Creation of The Roop Group
 

The Roop Group was created in October 2021 because of the realization that fewer and fewer companies within the State of Ohio were giving persons who tested positive for prohibited substances a second chance. Employers could also not fill employment ranks because fewer applicants were testing negative on drug tests! Yet, as we speak, employers continue to interview, do background checks, drug test, and agonize until they find someone who can fit the bill and test negative! Sadly, they're unaware that a more effective and efficient way is available: the Roop Group's Company Assistance Program (CAP).

As a clinician with 25+ years EAP and other clinical experience, Margie knows that when persons are addicted, poor judgement, self-centeredness, and irresponsibility will define the day. Brains have changed; the neurotransmitter dopamine alters people's functioning: period! However, employers must protect their workforce and their bottom line. Additionally, many persons who struggle with substance abuse are lost. A Last Chance Agreement (LCA) is the solution pairing  persons effectively treated for this disease with employers' needs for a drug-free workplace.  A second chance: to get it right, to get drug-free, get the job, and become a contributing member of society. 

The job is the last thing to go in the substance abuser's life: they'll let the spouse and kids go, lose the house and cars, empty out the 401k and savings account, all the while bragging how they continue to "bring home the bacon..." What they CANNOT see is this: that their life is in shambles. The employer might have a sense that things aren't going so good in the employee's life, but the abusing employee works tirelessly convincing everyone otherwise. The employer has little to go by and, as long as that employee keeps performing "OK" at work, the employer doesn't delve any further. 

The employer doesn't realize the power it wields: the ability to do what the abuser's family cannot: compel them into treatment.
