Idaho Drug Testing

Idaho and the surrounding Midwestern states are suffering from a rising drug and alcohol epidemic. Opioid and heroin addictions have become the new rising trouble for Idaho, as is the reaming threat from methamphetamines. With Idaho's general population being smaller than the average state, it is surprising to find that residents ages 12 and older have admitted to some degree of alcohol dependence.

US Drug Test Centers is ready to help you with your online drug testing needs, with same day services and an array of testing options from EtG alcohol testing and DOT drug testing. The EtG has an 80-hour look back period for alcohol consumption.

Our testing locations do not accept payment and require a drug test order form at the time of testing. Please click the "Order a Test" button to order your test. Once your order has been processed, your drug test order form will be emailed to you. Testing options may vary on a site by site basis. Additional fees may apply depending on your location.

Maintaining a Drug Free Workplace

Maintaining a drug free workplace is especially important for achieving quality work and ensuring safety. In Idaho, employers can drug test their employees on a number of occasions, including any time there is a workplace accident, whenever they have reasonable suspicion of drug use, whenever an employee is returning back to duty after a sabbatical, and even at random. Employers that consistently maintain a drug free workplace can actually qualify for a discount on their workers' compensation insurance premium. Drug tests in Idaho workplaces help prevent accidents on the job as well as improve office relationships.

Drugs aren't the only type of testing that can be implemented in the workplace. We also offer alcohol testing to help your employees stay sober. Our advanced ETG alcohol testing uses urine to detect alcohol up to five days after drinking, which can be a great tool for highlighting binge drinkers.

Another important service we offer is DOT drug testing. This test investigates usage of five different drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines, and PCP. IT also requires the use of a medical review officer to double check the results and confer with the employee whether or not there might be a reasonable explanation for any positives. For example, an MRO will investigate prescriptions or medical treatments that may cause false positives and then conclude the result of the test to be negative.

Our drug tests also are a great resource for personal reasons, such as court-ordered drug testing, probation drug testing, or drug testing for divorce or custody cases. Our drug screening centers provide confidential results that you can use to prove you are clean and sober.
