ERM Associates, Inc. was established in 1995 to provide administrative support to the Medical Director and clinical staff of the National Football League Program for Substances of Abuse in their efforts to evaluate, refer and monitor the treatment of players entered into the Program. The principals involved in ERM previously provided these services to the National Football League Players Association from 1992 to 1994.

Services are provided by a network of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and addictions counselors with experience in the assessment, intervention, treatment and aftercare of individuals with substance use problems.

In addition to their primary work with the NFL Program for Substances of Abuse, the principals of ERM Associates have provided consultation and training services to the NFL Player Engagement Department, the NFL Rookie Symposium, individual NFL teams, NCAA football teams, the NBA, the NHL, and various public agencies and private organizations.
