The Clearinghouse Report highlighted over 35,000 violations of DOT regulations that were documented during the month of August. Positive drug tests accounted for 81% of the total violations reported, with marijuana being the #1 drug used.

Understanding the role that cannabis plays both recreationally and medically is complex as the benefits and risks tend to be exaggerated. Our Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs) are highly trained in the field of behavioral health and have designed an education program to help participants make fact-based decisions about personal use of marijuana.
