Workplace Drug Testing and Services
Drug Testing for Employees
Drug testing with urine and/or hair is often used when screening job applicants and also for random testing of current employees, particularly if their position carries any inherent risk or danger — such as for certain employees of DOT companies.
US Drug Test Centers specializes in employee health and drug-free workplace drug testing programs, with alcohol and drug testing at work for both non-DOT and DOT businesses. We offer testing for:
- Random testing
- Reasonable suspicion
Our services also include:
- Creating drug-free workplace policy manuals
- Drug and alcohol online training for supervisors and DERs (Designated Employer Representative)
- Finding or customizing the perfect drug test panel for you
- Verifying all results with a Medical Review Officer (MRO)
- Random drug and alcohol testing programs, where you can choose to test your employees monthly, quarterly, or annually for drugs and/or alcohol. Your program can choose to test a specified number of employees or a percentage each time your random selections are processed
Types of Drug and Alcohol Testing
US Drug Test Centers offers urine, hair, and breath alcohol testing for employers. We have panels that include marijuana, PCP, cocaine, methamphetamine, oxycodone, MDMA, and more. We also can add the expanded opiates panel to your testing, which includes the most commonly abused prescription drugs.
Depending on what your company is trying to accomplish, our drug test panels are able to test back up to 90 days. Urine testing tests back about three to five days. Hair testing tests back about seven to 90 days. Breath alcohol testing is for current impairment.

Why You Need Alcohol and Drug Testing at Work
There are numerous reasons why you should be drug testing at work. A whopping 70% of the 14.8 million Americans using illegal drugs in this country are employed, meaning it might be happening in your own place of business.
Substance abuse in the business setting can be costly in more ways than one. Here are some of the benefits of workplace drug testing.
Increased Productivity and Employee Retention
Research has found a negative correlation between drug abuse and productivity — as the former increases, the latter decreases. Drug use has also been linked to an increase in employee turnover.
Poor Work Performance, Crime, and Accidents on the Job
An employee who is impaired or under the influence can’t safely and adequately perform their job. Research has connected employee drug abuse with poor work performance, increased crime rates in the workplace, and a greater number of accidents on the job.
Increased Expenses to Employers
Drug use in the workplace can lead to an increase in workers’ compensation claims, absenteeism, injuries, theft, increases in health care costs, legal costs, and lost productivity. Overall, drug use at work might be costing employers as much as $81 billion each year.
By planning and preparing for alcohol and drug testing at work, you’re not just protecting your team and maintaining a safe and comfortable work environment. You’re also helping to keep your business efficiently running like a well-oiled machine.
