Meet your SAP, Abby Willroth 

Abby Willroth of Willroth Consulting is a NAADAC qualified Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare. 

Who Is Qualified to Act As A SAP? 

To be recognized as a DOT-qualified SAP (Substance Abuse Professional), an individual must hold credentials as a counselor, psychologist, or social worker. Furthermore, they need to successfully complete a DOT-endorsed training program comprising a minimum of 40 hours of instruction.

Willroth Consulting is recognized as a DOT Qualified SAP based in Arkansas. 

How Long Does the DOT Return-To-Duty (RTD) Process Take?

The duration of the SAP process is contingent upon the treatment recommendations provided by the SAP, as well as your adherence to the prescribed education and/or treatment regimen. The SAP will assess your progress by maintaining regular communication with your treatment provider. Upon successful compliance with the SAP's recommendations, you will be contacted to arrange a Follow-Up Evaluation. Conversely, if minimal to no progress is observed, the SAP will refrain from scheduling the Follow-Up Evaluation. On average, the SAP process takes between a few weeks to a few months. It is important to note that each case is individualized, and recommendations vary based on the specifics of each case. 


We invite you to schedule a complimentary 15-minute consultation to learn more about the DOT return-to-duty process. We look forward to assisting you.

What Is the Cost of SAP Services?

The fee for SAP services can vary depending on the individual SAP as well as the geographic region. To obtain specific information about a SAP's fees, we strongly encourage you to contact the SAP directly. In certain instances, your employer's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) may cover the costs associated with SAP services. Alternatively, you may be responsible for covering these expenses yourself, and it is recommended to consult your employer for further details.

Typically, health insurance policies do not include coverage for SAP assessments or subsequent appointments.

It is common for many SAPs to require full payment for their services in advance. If you are unable to provide payment during the initial office visit, a SAP may opt not to commence the evaluation. Additionally, some SAPs may accept payment via cashier's check, money order, or credit card.
