What Is Drug Screening For Employment?
The purpose of drug testing is to determine if controlled substances are present in a person’s body.
Drug screening provides evidence of recent use of specific prescription and illicit drugs, but does not measure the specific amount of drug present.
Once a sample is collected from the candidate, an initial screen is run to determine the presence (positive) or absence (negative) of a detectable drug.
Confirmation screening is a second screen, and is generally performed only if the initial screen was positive. Results are reviewed by a Medical Review Officer.
Results (positive or negative) for each drug selected are provided to the employer and candidate within 1-3 days of the test.
