The solution

How CAP Works

   

        argie Roop created the Company Assistance Program (CAP) for small to mid-size employers in the State of Ohio stumped by problems at work involving substance abuse or other mental health issues. Roop, Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) with 20+ years of experience in the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) field, has evaluated hundreds of persons who've tested positive for prohibited substances as well as employees presenting with problematic behaviors at work. As a SAP under U.S. D.O.T. 49 CFR Part 40, Margie utilizes this same "Gold Standard" of assessment and case management to thoroughly identify the needs of the individual then make the most effective treatment referral for optimum results. CAP promotes human resource/managerial intervention rather than hesitation with possible policy violations because employers now have an option: offer good job applicants or current employees a

     The Company Assistance Program will, through Margie's direct case oversight:

T

 Last Chance Agreement (LCA)

 he employer will receive a Last Chance Agreement  template to use with the person being referred to CAP. The LCA includes the necessary Release of Information (ROI) allowing the company and CAP Coordinator to share essential elements of the referral and results. It also sets out expectations of the person being referred and the consequences of failure to comply with the LCA. 

Connections

Connect the person to the appropriate treatment provider and/or education component and local self-help support resources. Coordinator will ensure treatment provider has all results of the Initial Evaluation and recommendations.

Information

Inform the employer when the person has completed all requirements of the LCA. The employer will then contact the employee for their pre-employment or return to duty drug test.

Initial Evaluation

Provide a two-hour Initial Evaluation by Margie Roop, Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) in person or via Webex depending on the employee's location within the State of Ohio. The Evaluation meets all expectations of the use of objective criteria and processes as required by 49 CFR Part 40; therefore, is a highly thorough evaluation process.

Management

Manage the case from start to finish remaining in communication with the employer and the treatment provider. No need for the employer to have to call anyone other than the CAP Coordinator.

Aftercare Plan

Inform the employer of any recommended Aftercare Plan  for that person as a condition of their Last Chance Agreement. Most persons will be subject to an Aftercare Plan which could last up to one year. 

Recommendations

Provide recommendations for appropriate education, treatment, and Self-Help support groups. Coordinator will ensure that recommendations can be fulfilled through person's healthcare coverage. If a person either has no insurance or ability to pay for treatment, they will be referred to any number of local non-profit organizations who can work with the person on a sliding-fee scale.

Follow-Up

Provide a one-hour Follow-Up Evaluation once treatment recommendations have been successfully completed. This confirms successful completion of treatment and allows for provision of the Aftercare Plan.
