Alcohol and Drug Testing for Illinois Employers

Controlled substances can cause serious damage to the workplace. Drugs can lead to more accidents and crime, as well as increase employee turnover. Furthermore, substance abuse is bad for employees' productivity and morale.

Many Illinois employers require drug testing to maintain safety and efficiency in the workplace.

Here's how we're helping fight drug use at work:

  • We'll carefully create your drug-free workplace policies. These outline important information like how you eliminate bias when it comes to selecting employees for your random drug testing program, how you respect Illinois drug testing laws, what happens when the employer receives positive test results from an employee, what counts as "reasonable suspicion," the employer's stance on medical marijuana, how you protect employee privacy during testing, and more.

  • US Drug Test Centers can conduct all of your alcohol and drug testing in Illinois. This includes reasonable suspicion testing, post-accident testing, random testing, pre-employment drug testing, and return-to-duty drug testing.

What Makes US Drug Test Centers Different?

Why work with us and not another drug testing provider?

Our Test Results Are Accurate

We only work with SAMHSA-certified laboratories in Illinois. A certified laboratory is held to stricter standards when it comes to its drug testing equipment and processes.

In addition, test results are verified by a medical review officer (MRO), who is a licensed physician.

Why is an MRO important? As an example, let's say an employee receives a positive drug test, but they believe there's a legitimate reason for it — like their prescription medication triggered it. An MRO will be able to confirm whether or not the positive drug test result is accurate, and if follow-up drug testing is needed.

This is why US Drug Test Centers is the best when it comes to screening for illegal drugs.

Our Testing is Convenient

We have more than 20,000 drug testing locations around the nation, so you never have to go far to find a collection site!

Furthermore, if you need a drug test in a hurry, we offer both instant/POCT urine drug tests (where negative results are returned the same day) and onsite mobile drug tests, where a trained collector will meet you or your employee within two hours.
