Substance Abuse Professional Referral
A SAP who evaluates a person may not refer that person to his or her private practice, or to a place where
the SAP is employed or has a financial relationship. The rules do not prohibit, however, a SAP from
referring a person who tested positive for assistance through:
- A public agency
- The employer, or a person under contract to the employer to provide treatment for alcohol or drug problems on behalf of the employer;
- The sole source of therapeutically appropriate treatment under the person's health insurance program; or,
- The sole source of therapeutically appropriate treatment reasonably accessible to the person.
