J Thomas Smith, PhD, PsyD, DMin, JD, LMFT, Drug & Alcohol Counselor in Houston
The focus of my practice is providing substance abuse assessments to employees subject to the Department of Transportation drug and alcohol regulations and to non-DOT employees subject to company drug free workplace requirements. To date, I have completed over 3,000 cases. I have served as a mental health consultant and expert witness. I am licensed in Texas and Georgia as a professional counselor, and in Texas as a marriage and family therapist, childcare administrator and chemical dependency counselor. I am a National Board Certified (NCC) Counselor, Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor, and Master Addictions Counselor (NBCC). Served on the NBCC Examination Committee.
A significant number of companies maintain a drug-free workplace program for employees who are not subject to DOT regulations. A drug and alcohol testing plan is one way for an employer to maintain a safe work environment and can be based on insurance requirements, negotiated labor agreements and/or company Human Resource policies.
Because the DOT SAP process is seen as the GOLD standard by many employers, an employer may require an employee who has failed or refused a drug or alcohol test to be seen by a DOT qualified Substance Abuse Professional for a 'non-DOT SAP' evaluation. States accept assessments to reinstate professional and drivers licenses.
