Alabama Drug Testing FAQs

Do employers in Alabama need to comply with mandatory state-specific rules when drug & alcohol testing?
No. Alabama does not have any mandatory drug testing statutes or regulations but it is recommended.
Is a Drug-Free Workplace policy required in Alabama?
No, however, employers are strongly encouraged to have a written policy in place (Policy is specifically required to comply with the Alabama’s voluntary law).
Are employers in Alabama able to leverage their drug screening program to reduce their Worker’s Compensation Insurance costs?
Yes. Alabama provides employers with the ability to voluntarily participate in a Drug-Free Workplace Program to qualify for workers’ compensation insurance premium reductions. Employers wishing to leverage these benefits must voluntarily comply with very detailed program rules.
What are some nuances of the voluntary Drug-Free Workplace Program requirements in Alabama?
All testing is required to be conducted by a laboratory. Drug testing panels, methods and reasons to test are limited. The use of a Medical Review Officer (MRO) is required.
Are employers in Alabama able to use drug screening for any other claim defenses or state-specific financial benefits?
Yes. Employers may leverage a ‘Rebuttable Presumption of Intoxication’ defense to a Workers’ Compensation Claim, based on a positive drug test result. A positive drug test, when conducted according to the rules, also constitutes as ‘misconduct’ and thus makes the employee ineligible for unemployment compensation. Employers wishing to leverage either of these benefits must voluntarily comply with very detailed program rules.
Does Alabama authorize marijuana (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD) use?

Yes. Alabama permits medical cannabidiol (CBD) use for patients that meet specific medical conditions. The law does not specifically impact employment drug testing programs.

In Alabama, if you test positive on a drug test it can be grounds for termination or a rescinded job offer.

How Employers Maintain a Drug-Free Workplace

Did you know that every single year, employers spend tens of billions of dollars due to drug use in the work environment?

Drug use at work hurts productivity and morale. It can lead to more accidents and crime on the job. Additionally, it increases employee turnover. Substance abuse hurts Alabama employees, employers, and companies' bottom lines.

Here's how US Drug Test Centers helps keep drug use out of the work environment.

We Conduct All Alcohol and Drug Testing

US Drug Test Centers has the widest selection of screening options in the state of Alabama. We can test for a large number of substances, including marijuana, PCP, ecstasy, cocaine, methadone, Rohypnol, suboxone, methamphetamine, amphetamines, barbiturates, and many more.

We'll Work With You to Create Your Drug-Free Workplace Program

Parts of your drug-free workplace program include your drug testing process, your drug-free workplace policy, and conducting background checks as part of pre-employment screening.

Your policy is important because it helps employees understand important things like under what conditions you test employees (reasonable suspicion, random drug testing, pre-employment screening, post-accident drug testing, etc.), what happens when employees test positive, how you protect employee privacy, the company's stance on medical and recreational marijuana, and how you abide by Alabama and federal law.

We'll Train Your Staff

Birmingham, Alabama

Your team is there to help you manage your drug testing program. We'll show them how to determine reasonable suspicion, how to avoid bias during random drug testing, and more.

Both pre-recorded and live training is available.

Partnering With DOT Companies

Are you a company or owner-operator employed by the Department of Transportation (DOT)? The DOT's rules around drug testing are incredibly strict, especially for individuals in safety-sensitive positions.

US Drug Test Centers partners with companies under the Department of Transportation to ensure that they stay compliant with the DOT (as well as local and federal drug testing laws) so that you can pass a DOT audit at any time.

Learn more about our DOT services and testing.

Other Drug Tests Available

Outside of workplace drug tests, what can we offer? Any resident of Alabama can order a test on our website as needed!

In addition, we have more specific screening options. For example, court-ordered drug testing is suitable for individuals involved in DUI, child custody, and probation cases.

If you have questions about any of our testing options or other services, contact us today and we'll be happy to assist you.

What Makes US Drug Test Centers Different?

Why partner with us and not another drug testing partner?

Accurate Test Results Are Our Priority

We work with SAMHSA-certified laboratories, which have to follow certain procedures and meet specific drug testing requirements.

Furthermore, results are verified by a medical review officer (MRO), who is a licensed physician. But why is this important?

Let's say, as an example, that an employee receives a positive test result, but they believe it could've been triggered by a prescription medication. An MRO will determine if the positive test is accurate or if a re-test is needed.

We Make Drug Testing in Alabama Convenient

With more than 20,000 locations nationwide, we're never more than a short drive away. Some of our locations even accept same-day appointments.

Do you or your company need drug testing in a hurry? Try instant/POCT urine drug testing, where negative results are returned the same day.

Onsite mobile drug testing also provides added convenience. A trained collector will meet you or your employee within two hours to begin the drug testing procedure.

Our Variety Can't Be Beat

With our vast array of drug testing options in Alabama, our availability can't be beat. Whether you need reasonable suspicion testing, random drug tests, urine sample collection, alcohol testing, or any other sort of screening for illegal substances, we can help.
