Drugs of Abuse Screening

Urine drug screening is available to anyone. Services are confidential and anonymous testing is offered (no names exchanged). The screening provides:

  • Zero-tolerance program (very low sensitivity informs when drugs are present at very low levels)
  • Quantitative results (positive results are reported with the amount of drug found)
  • The ability to monitor usage (a rise or decline in levels may reflect the client’s recent drug habit)
  • Resistance to adulteration (low sensitivity prevents additives from interfering with drug detection)
