In the last decade, the number of drug-related deaths in Delaware has been on the rise. In 2015 alone, 154 deaths were the result of opiate overdoses. Among the most abused drugs in Delaware, heroin, cocaine and meth are of the highest with 9% of people reporting that they have used an illicit drug.
Because Delaware has continued to see an increase in drug use throughout the state, several industries require pre-employment drug testing. If you are working or seeking work as an airline employee, truck or bus driver or in the railroad industry, it is required that you take and pass a DOT drug test. Pre and post-accident test are available for employees who suspect drug or alcohol use as well.
Many non-DOT employers are also choosing to implement a drug-free policy in the workplace. Potential candidates are required to take a pre-employment drug test before completing the hiring process. Those who use medical marijuana may not get a "free pass", as employers can choose at their discretion whether or not to hire someone who tests positive for THC, even if they have a valid prescription.

Delaware Drug Testing FAQs
Drug Use in Delaware is on the Rise
Drug abuse is a serious problem in Delaware. Heroin has, once again, increased in popularity. Heroin's resurgence is to blame for the rising death count, Delaware state officials say. By all accounts, the latest spike in heroin use is a result of a successful crackdown on the abuse of prescription painkillers such as Percocet and OxyContin. Doctors began to prescribe these drugs less and manufacturers made the tablets harder for addicts to crush so they could snort or inject them, causing users to turn to heroin, instead. While heroin sales have clearly branched out into New Castle County in recent years, there is still a steady stream of addicts who come to Wilmington for heroin. Often, they buy in bulk and sell to their friends.
The Delaware Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH) provides public drug and alcohol treatment services for adults, primarily through contracts with private agencies. Services include screening and evaluation; outpatient counseling; opioid treatment, including methadone maintenance; continuous treatment team programs for individuals with long-term, disabling alcohol and drug dependence disorders; less intensive case management services offered through the outpatient counseling agencies; detoxification; and residential services. The residential services include short-term/variable length-of-stay treatment (30 days or less), long-term treatment, and halfway houses.
