Chapter 5. Rehabilitation

5.1 Referral and Availability

5.1.1 Center EAP clinicians provide employees who use illegal drugs (or any employee, upon their request) with available options for drug treatment and rehabilitation programs that provide the best chance for success. Factors taken into consideration when EAP clinicians provide referrals include employee insurance coverage, facility location, the severity of the dependency, the potential of multiple stages of treatment and rehabilitation necessary, and the employee's level of engagement in compliance.

5.1.2 Once enrolled in a program, employees referred by an EAP clinician may determine that the treatment or rehabilitation program is unsatisfactory. At the professional discretion of the Center's referring EAP clinician and depending on the circumstances, the employee may be referred to a different drug treatment and rehabilitation program. The EAP clinician's decision to make an alternative referral is final and not subject to further administrative review.

5.1.3 Regardless of the treatment program chosen, the employee is responsible for the cost and successful completion of the treatment.

5.2 Use of Leave

5.2.1 For absences during duty hours during the assessment/referral phase of rehabilitation, an employee will be allowed up to one hour (or more as necessitated by travel time) of excused absence for each counseling session up to a maximum determined by the supervisor according to workload requirements, leave regulations, and Agency policy.

5.2.2 Absences during duty hours for rehabilitation/treatment after the assessment/referral phase will be charged to the appropriate leave category, (e.g., annual, sick, or leave without pay).
