If you need drug and alcohol testing in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, US Drug Test Centers is here to help. Keep reading to learn more about how our drug testing specialists can help you keep illegal drug use at bay, whether you're a DOT or non-DOT employer, or simply a resident of Charlotte, North Carolina in need of drug and alcohol testing.
Broadly speaking, there are a few different types of drug and alcohol testing you can request: the breath, urine, and hair drug test.
The urine drug test is a common choice for employers because it's quick and non-invasive. Additionally, it can be used to screen for a number of illicit drugs.
Furthermore, there's our instant urine drug test. If you need immediate drug testing and fast results, this is a great option. Negative test results are returned on the same day!
However, hair tests do offer some benefits that the urine drug test does not. Because they're directly supervised by the collector who's gathering the sample, they're harder to cheat. Plus, this type of drug test has a longer lookback period than the urine drug test.
This means that if you want to detect long-term patterns of illegal drug use, this is a better option than a urine drug test.
For alcohol testing specifically, you also have the breath alcohol test, which screens for EtG.
If you're not sure what type of drug or alcohol test you need, contact us online and we'll be happy to assist you with excellent customer service!
