SAMHSA Report for Wisconsin
Reports published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimate that there are 456,000 people over the age of 12 who are dependent or abuse illicit drugs or alcohol in Wisconsin. Though Appleton is nowhere near epidemic levels, drug testing and drug free workplace programs help to directly address substance abuse issues in a community.
Reporting of Drug and Alcohol Testing Results
For point of collection testing, POCT, we do this electronically with immediate reporting and cloud based storage of the results. State laws must be reviewed to see if there are any restrictions on the instant test.
With lab based testing, negative results are typically reported one business day after the collection. Anytime a specimen has to go to the gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) testing method, you will be looking at 2 – 3 additional business days for results. Employers must be patient on these results as an accurate result positive or negative is critical to making business decisions that will not lead to exposure to liability.

We can provide your company with resources for your employees to learn more about drug use and who to contact if they have a substance abuse problem. The overall aim is to ensure all individuals gain an awareness of drugs and alcohol as hazards in the workplace.

Although not required by regulation, many non-DOT or non-regulated employers often conduct random drug and alcohol testing. These non-DOT programs can be customized and managed by US Drug Test Centers in Appleton.
The best tool employers have for deterring drug and alcohol use in the workplace is random testing. This type of drug and alcohol program saves lives and prevents injuries by assisting employers with identifying workers who have substance abuse issues and help facilitate their treatment. It also reduces an employer’s liability. Random drug and alcohol testing programs also benefits employees. Drug testing in the workplace allows employees to easily say no to illegal drug use. It is also a fair way of testing. Computers generate the list of employees to be tested, which ensures that it is indeed random and that each person in the workforce population has an equal chance of being selected for testing, regardless of whether that person was recently tested or not.
