SAMHSA Report for Tennessee

Probation and Court Ordered Drug and Alcohol Testing in Chattanooga

Our drug testing specialists set up testing appointments for probation and court ordered drug or alcohol tests on a daily basis. Your probation officer or the court order should provide you guidance on what test you should order. It is very important that you ask the probation office or the court system what drug testing panel is required and whether alcohol testing is required. If alcohol testing is required ask specifically is it to be a urine alcohol test, a blood alcohol test or a breath alcohol test. For alcohol testing always ask if EtG alcohol testing is required.

Many times the court system or probation department will also require expanded opiates or testing for pain medications as part of the required drug test.

Instant Drug Testing in Chattanooga

Instant drug testing is commonly called point of collection testing or on site testing. This type of test gives negative results same day as test; the actual testing is conducted at the facility where you give the specimen. There is a great advantage with onsite instant testing as you get a negative result the same day as you provide the specimen for testing. Pre-employment drug testing, court ordered drug testing, drug tests for probation, child custody cases, random drug testing, and testing teenagers are all situations in which point of collection could be beneficial.

Types of Drug and Alcohol Tests in Chattanooga

Employers throughout the United States are now implementing hair testing programs due to the benefits this alternative specimen offers. Hair follicle drug testing is becoming increasingly popular. Hair testing can detect the drugs/metabolites taken up to 90 days, can evaluate long-term patterns of repetitive drug use, and is flexible in drug panels and can also test for EtG alcohol in hair. Same day service is available for hair testing with a 3-4 business day turnaround for final hair drug testing results.

Aside from the traditional 5 panel test, we also have an expanded 10 panel test. These additional configurations can include Benzodiazepines (such as Xanax), Barbiturates, Methadone, Propoxyphene, Methaqualone (Quaaludes) and Oxycodone including Oxymorphone and Oxycodone. Traditional facilities routinely provide testing for both the 5 panel and 10 panel drug tests.

US Drug Test Centers in Chattanooga can also run alcohol specific tests. These include a variety of urine tests, hair tests, and breath alcohol testing. The EtG hair test measures the average ingestion of Ethyl Alcohol over a three month period. While this does not detect current impairment it can indicate a behavioral issue.

Chattanooga's Most Accurate Drug or Alcohol Testing

How do I know if the test is accurate? All of US Drug Test Centers' specimens go to a SAMHSA certified laboratory for testing. SAMHSA has an active advisory board that keeps its employees and administrators abreast of current and changing laws when it comes to drug testing. There are Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Employee Drug Testing Programs that must carry consistencies throughout every agency and company that SAMHSA laboratories supplies. The advisory board has professionals that are uniquely qualified in their respective fields to review scientific evidence in the area of drug and alcohol treatment and testing practices.
