Alcohol and Drug Testing for the Workplace
Substance abuse is a serious workplace problem. Studies show substance abusers are less productive, more likely to cause injuries and accidents, and have higher health costs. Our company provides pre-employment, pre-promotion, and post-accident drug and alcohol testing, as well as reasonable suspicion and random testing, to meet your needs.
Methods of Alcohol and Drug Testing
The first method of testing we use is a hair test, which uses 1.5" of hair. This test detects drug use for up to 90 days and is good for detecting a history of drug use. Hair drug testing does not detect drug use until within 7 to 10 days of use. Drugs must be used at least 3 times in that window to cause a positive test. Dye, bleach, shampoo, and limited exposure to smoke do not affect the results of the hair drug test.
The second method we use is a breathalyzer test for alcohol. This test involves the use of DOT-approved equipment. The final method we use is urinalysis, which detects traces of drugs in the urine. Traces of drugs can be found within a short time after using them. Depending on the drug, these traces remain for days or weeks.
Our team can provide urinalysis via a Rapid Screen drug test that offers instant results. However, this test, while FDA-approved, is not DOT-approved. A certified SAMHSA lab should also verify it.
Alternatively, we can have a 100% accurate test complete by a federally certified SAMHSA lab with a specific chain of custody in place. This method is DOT-approved and results will be received within 48 to 72 hours. Get in touch with us today to find out more.
