Urine Drug Testing

Standard Urine Screen Testing Overview

Urine testing, one of the most common screening methods, is an accurate and reliable way to detect casual drug use that occurred. Testing is performed at all four Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)-certified laboratories. Employer Solutions offers a variety of test panels and cutoff levels in addition to the federally mandated (SAMHSA/DOT) five-drug panel.
