With its low rolling mountains and rocky coastlines, know for Acadia National Park, the coastal lighthouses that put paintings to shame and incredible seafood, Maine is surprisingly the 9th least populated state in the nation with less than 1.4 million residents. While the population may be one of the smallest, that hasn't prevented the opioid crisis from reaching this northernmost New England state.
Drug abuse is a serious problem in Maine. Methamphetamine is a key drug of choice. In addition, the increase in heroin and other illicit drugs has been on the rise since the mid-2000s. Heroin has re-emerged as a serious problem and, during the last decade, problems with illicit drugs were dwarfed by Maine's problem with pharmaceutical misuse, usually in combination with other pharmaceuticals. Experts say that to truly alleviate Maine's drug problem, the state must address substance abuse and provide more funding for clinics and youth diversion programs.
Maine has struggled with increasing abuse of opioids, cocaine and methamphetamines; all of these are to blame for the rise in overdose-related deaths, an 11% increase since 2016. Employers have begun to take steps to implement pre-employment screening, which typically includes background checks and drug testing. If you're looking for pre-employment drug testing, you've come to the right place.

Maine has a comprehensive law that regulates when drug tests may be given, specifies testing procedures that ensure employee privacy, and requires that opportunities be provided for rehabilitation and treatment of substance-abuse problems (ME Rev. Stat. Tit. 26 Sec. 681et seq.). The law covers all public and private employers, regardless of size. Employers wanting to enact a drug testing program must have a policy approved by the Maine Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Standards.
Before it may require, request, or suggest that any employee or applicant submit to a substance abuse test, an employer must have a written policy that has been developed by the employer and approved by the Department of Labor, and a copy of the policy must be provided to employees 30 days prior to implementation.
The policy should include:
- The employment positions subject to testing
- The procedures/consequences of voluntary admission of substance abuse and available assistance
- When testing may occur
- The procedures for specimen collection and storage
- The substances tested for
- The consequences of a positive result or refusal to take a test.
Before establishing a testing program, employers with 20 or more full-time employees must have made an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) available to their employees.
