Tennessee Drug Testing

80% of crimes in Tennessee have been linked to illegal drugs. With the state working hard to combat heroin, the citizens who struggle with addiction have been forced to move towards prescription opioids. Tennessee ranks 14th in the nation for drug abuse and 3rd in opioid prescriptions written per capita. Each year in Tennessee there are over 100,000 people abusing other illegal drugs such as cocaine and crack cocaine.

Implementing a Drug Free Workplace Program

Today, millions of Americans struggle with substance abuse-related issues, both at home as well as in the workplace. Companies in Tennessee value their employees and customers and recognize the adverse effects that substance abuse—including the use of illegal drugs, the abuse of alcohol, and misuse of prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications—can have on the work environment.

Employees who use drugs and abuse alcohol are less productive, less reliable, and pose a direct threat to the safety and well-being of others. These companies in Tennessee implement drug free workplace programs. These same Tennessee companies receive a 5% premium credit on their workers' insurance policy.

US Drug Test Centers can assist employers in implementing a compliant Tennessee drug free workplace program or a DOT drug and alcohol testing program including the random consortium program.

In Tennessee, as defined in the Drug Free Workplace Rules and Guidelines, "Medical Review Officer" or "MRO" means a licensed physician, employed with or contracted with a covered employer, who has knowledge of substance abuse disorders, laboratory testing procedures and chain of custody collection procedures; who verifies positive, confirmed test results; and who has the necessary medical training to interpret and evaluate an employee's positive test result in relation to the employee's medical history or any other relevant biomedical information.

The MRO should be used to review all positive tests with the employee or applicant before the employer is advised of the test results. Using an MRO provides the employer with a medically qualified interpretation of a positive test result, which would be defensible in a court of law. The MRO helps to protect both the employer and the employee.

A misconception is that drug testing is prone to inaccuracy with so-called "false" positives. Several years ago, some over-the-counter drugs such as ibuprofen or diet pills could cause false positives for illicit drugs. Today, tests have been refined to the point where this does not occur. Courts favor employee testing that is based on procedures that are clear, fair, consistent, and communicated in a written policy statement.
