Urine drug testing, also known as a urine drug screen, is a fast, discrete, painless test to analyze your urine for certain illegal and prescription drugs. During your appointment, you will be asked for a urine sample that will be analyzed by our trained staff. Results from a urine drug test are typically available within 24 hours.
Drug testing can be required by employers or as part of a medical treatment plan. You may be required to get a drug test prior to employment or be screened for on-the-job drug use if your position requires you to stay alert. Professional or collegiate athletes may need to undergo urine drug testing to screen for performance enhancing drugs prior to competitive events. You may also receive a urine drug test if you have been prescribed an opioid for chronic pain management to make sure you are taking the right amount of your medicine.
Common Questions About Urine Drug Testing:
What do drug tests look for?
A urine drug test can screen for 5 to 10 drugs including amphetamines or methamphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine, marijuana, MDA or MDMA, opiates, nicotine or alcohol.
Why do I need a pre-employment drug test?
A pre-employment drug test is often a requirement by employers as a final step in the hiring process. This protects the employer from the potential negative impact of hiring a drug user. A negative drug test result is required before the applicant can begin working.
