Wilmington is the county seat of New Castle County, Delaware. The city has a population of over 71,000 people, making it the largest city in the state. The Delaware Metro area consists of counties in 4 different states. Its principal cities are Philadelphia, Camden, Wilmington, Reading, Trenton, Atlantic City, Vineland, Hammonton, and Dover.
Bank of America, Chase Card Services, and Barclays Bank of Delaware (formerly Juniper Bank), are all headquartered in Wilmington because the state of Delaware eliminated its usury laws. Wilmington also has a large network of insurance and legal services companies. The city's top employers are the State of Delaware, Christiana Care Health System, and DuPont.
The Delaware State Park system manages four parks in Wilmington. Admission to Brandywine Park, Alapocas Woods Natural Area, H. Fletcher Brown Park, and Rockford Park is free.

Reports published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimate that there are 48,000 people over the age of 12 who are dependent or abuse illicit drugs or alcohol in Delaware.

There are many specific components a company must have in place in order to be compliant with DOT regulations. US Drug Test Centers can guarantee your company will be in compliance by assisting in the creation of the follow documents, policies, and procedures:
Employees must take reasonable care for their own health and safety and that of others. They must cooperate with the employer when actions are taken to comply with company alcohol and drug policy regulations. It is considered a good practice for employers to remove employees from their act of duty immediate when they have failed the drug test or reported for services under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs.
Our Healthcare Professional Panel is also available in Wilmington. This panel tests for specific, highly addictive prescription medications that are readily accessible to workers in this field. This is a urine test which determines the presence or absence of the most abused prescription drugs or their metabolites. Our Healthcare Professional Panel is also an excellent standard for allied health students.
How do I know if the test is accurate? All of US Drug Test Centers' specimens go to a SAMHSA certified laboratory for testing. SAMHSA has an active advisory board that keeps its employees and administrators abreast of current and changing laws when it comes to drug testing. There are Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Employee Drug Testing Programs that must carry consistencies throughout every agency and company that SAMHSA laboratories supplies. The advisory board has professionals that are uniquely qualified in their respective fields to review scientific evidence in the area of drug and alcohol treatment and testing practices.
