Why Drug and Alcohol Testing Important?
Companies need a detailed drug and Alcohol testing policy that is well communicated. Drug testing as part of a Drug Free Workplace Program has been successful in lowering the rates of positive tests.
Many companies are starting to include prescription medications in their testing panel, including certain prescription opioids. Some employers require different policies to address requirements for safety sensitive positions, union guidelines, or other entities like the U.S.
Department of Transportation (DOT) guidelines for regulated motor carriers, airline pilots, train operators and others.
Where we began
Born in 2015 in Northeast PA, at the time and still today there is a epidemic happening with overdoses happening weekly if not daily.
We started this to help at least one person to seek help who was afraid to ask for it and through testing they had no choice but to be honest with themselves, their families and at times their job but most importantly themselves.
All our specialists are trained and approved to do both DOT and Non-Dot Drug and Alcohol testing
We have specialists ready and willing 24/7/365. Prices start from $25.00 which includes everything from collection, testing and MRO services. We contract with LabCorp, Quest and CRL accounts or we can set up your own account with any lab of your choosing or use our lab.
