Drug and Alcohol Testing for Mississippi Employers

Substance abuse in the workplace can cause irreparable damage. It hurts productivity and employee turnover, and it can lead to more accidents and crime on the job.

Employers can keep drug use out of the work environment with a thorough drug-free workplace program. Here's how we can help:

  • Complete drug and alcohol testing: We can conduct all of your Mississippi drug testing, including reasonable suspicion drug screening, random testing, pre-employment drug testing, post-accident testing, and return-to-duty drug testing. Furthermore, we can conduct drug testing for a long list of controlled substances.

  • Mississippi drug testing policy: Having a drug-free workplace policy is vital to keeping the work environment free of drug use. A written policy covers important details like under what conditions you conduct drug and alcohol testing, what counts as "reasonable suspicion," what controlled substances you screen for, the company's stance on medical marijuana, what happens if an employee refuses to test or happens to test positive, and how you remove bias from random testing.

  • Supervisor training: We'll train your staff and designated employer representative (DER) to help manage your drug-free workplace program.

We Offer the Biggest Selection of Drug Testing Options

We can screen for a large variety of controlled substances, including marijuana, cocaine, PCP, ecstasy, Rohypnol, suboxone, steroids, methadone, methamphetamine, amphetamine, and many more.

Choose from our number of drug test panels, where we screen for multiple controlled substances in one test.

Our Test Results Are Always Accurate

We partner with SAMHSA-certified laboratories and have the results of our drug tests 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 undergoes drug testing and receives a positive test result, but they believe it's because of their prescription medication. An MRO will determine if it's a positive confirmed test result or if follow-up drug testing is needed.

This is how we're able to ensure the results of our drug tests are always correct.
