Probation & Court Ordered Drug and Alcohol Testing in Port St. Lucie
Our drug testing specialists set up testing appointments for probation & court ordered drug or alcohol tests on a daily basis. Your probation officer or the court order should provide you guidance on what test you should order. It is very important that you ask the probation office or the court system what drug testing panel is required and whether alcohol testing is required. If alcohol testing is required ask specifically is it to be a urine alcohol test, a blood alcohol test or a breath alcohol test. For alcohol testing always ask if EtG alcohol testing is required.
Many times the court system or probation department will also require expanded opiates or testing for pain medications as part of the required drug test.

Instant drug testing is commonly called point of collection testing or on site testing. This type of test gives negative results same day as test; the actual testing is conducted at the facility where you give the specimen. There is a great advantage with onsite instant testing as you get a negative result the same day as you provide the specimen for testing. Pre-employment drug testing, court ordered drug testing, drug tests for probation, child custody cases, random drug testing, and testing teenagers are all situations in which point of collection could be beneficial.
