Urine Drug and Alcohol Testing in Eugene
Urine drug testing is the most common type of drug testing in the United States. Many employers conduct employee drug testing but it is still an often misunderstood process. Urine drug testing is conducted as an instant, point of collection, test or as a lab based test. It is easy to collect and transport, inexpensive to test, accurate, and provides a detection window deemed adequate by most employers.

- Five Panel: Cocaine, Marijuana (THC, cannabinoids), Phencyclidine (PCP – angel dust), Amphetamines (including Ecstasy and methamphetamines, also known as crystal meth), Opiates (including heroin, codeine and morphine)
