Vermont Drug Testing for Companies

Why do Vermont employers need workplace drug testing?

Drug use in the work environment can increase employee turnover and on-the-job accidents and crime. Furthermore, it can hurt productivity.

Maintaining a drug-free workplace is of critical importance. Here's how US Drug Test Centers can support employers.

Thorough Workplace Drug Testing

Overlooking Champlain Valley, Vermont

We offer the widest selection of drug and alcohol testing, including random drug testing, reasonable suspicion drug screening, random drug testing, post-accident drug screening, and return-to-duty drug testing.

We can screen via hair, urine, and breath specimens.

Furthermore, we can drug test for the presence of a number of substances, including marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, PCP, opioids, methadone, suboxone, Rohypnol, and many others.

Your Written Drug Testing Policy

Having a written drug testing policy is crucial. A written policy clarifies important details such as what happens if an employee tests positive, the company's stance on medical marijuana, how you remove bias from random testing, and more.

Staff Training

No Vermont employer should have to manage their drug testing program alone. We'll train your staff to order drug tests, determine reasonable suspicion, and more.

What Makes US Drug Test Centers Different?

With other drug testing providers available, why should you partner with us?

Homes in Woodstock, Vermont

Our Results Are Always Accurate

Because we partner with SAMHSA-certified laboratories and always have a medical review officer (MRO) verify drug test results, you can rest assured that your test result is accurate.

Why is an MRO important? Let's say, as an example, that an employee undergoes drug testing and receives a positive drug test result, but they suspect it was caused by their prescription medication. An MRO will validate the results and confirm if follow-up drug testing is needed.

We Offer the Most Variety and Convenience

Whatever substance you need to test for, we've got you covered — medical marijuana/recreational marijuana, cocaine, PCP, steroids, barbiturates, methamphetamine, amphetamine, and many others.

Plus, we have more than 20,000 testing locations around the nation, so you won't have to drive far to find Vermont drug testing.

Our Drug Testing is Fast

With onsite mobile drug screening, a trained collector will meet you or your employee within two hours to begin the collection process.
