Workplace Drug Testing

Pre-employment, random, post-accident, return-to-duty, reasonable suspicion and more.


It's a fact that business owners are losing over $100 billion per year due to alcohol and substance abuse in the workplace. ADS provides laboratory, and/or rapid (also referred to as "instant" or "point-of-collection"), on-site drug and alcohol testing to business owners who value implementing and maintaining a drug testing program.

What are some of the benefits of a drug and alcohol-free workplace?

  1. Increased productivity

  2. Reduced absenteeism, health insurance costs, tardiness and turnover

  3. Safer work environment

  4. Confidence in hiring only drug-free employees

  5. Receive insurance incentives and certifications


Do you currently have a drug test policy in place?

ADS can provide you with the proper paperwork and forms to initiate and maintain your drug-free policy as well as set up a random testing protocol that meets the specific needs of your company.

Do you already have an account with a lab and you need us to perform the collections for you?

All collection-only services are $25.00. Please call ahead and make an appointment.

Here are some examples of other services we provide:

Rapid Urine Drug Screens + 7-Panel Adulterant Detection (your location or ours):

Instant drug screens provide immediate results and have a lower cost per test. Per your request, we send all "non-negative" drug screens to a laboratory overnight to be confirmed through the confirmation process of GC/MS and LC/MS/MS, the industry gold-standard. We also offer MRO services wherein a physician contacts employees with a positive result to rule out "false positives" and to discuss prescription drug use with applicable employees.

Our pricing for rapid urine drug screening is based on the number of persons being tested:

Rapid 5-Panel + 7-Panel Adulterant Detection: $39.00 **CALL FOR BULK PRICING

Rapid 10-Panel + 7-Panel Adulterant Detection: $45.00 **CALL FOR BULK PRICING

Rapid 12-Panel + 7-Panel Adulterant Detection: $49.00 **CALL FOR BULK PRICING

Lab Tests (Non-Rapid ): 5, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12-Panel:

All lab tests (non-rapid) panels are legally defensible and SAMHSA approved. If you prefer have your potential employee(s) lab tested, we provide on-site, off-site and nationwide lab tests. Call us to set up an appointment for local collections or to obtain your authorization code and closest collection site for non-local collections.

North Carolina Employers/Business Owners: Rapid tests can be performed for pre-employment screens. However, it is highly recommended that all non-negative rapid test results be sent to an approved lab for confirmation. Random testing after employment has commenced (post accident, reasonable suspicion, etc.) should be performed at a SAMHSA approved lab, per the NC Controlled Substance Examination Regulation Act. ADS can perform all of these procedures at our Cary facility and nationwide on your behalf.

Hair Strand and Fingernail Drug Testing: 5 through 17 Panel

While urine testing is a very reliable modality, it is common knowledge that the look-back window averages 24-72 hours (sometimes longer if drug use is chronic).

Hair strand and fingernail testing are two ways to get an in depth assessment to determine if someone has used drugs during longer detection windows. Hair strand drug tests search up to three months in the past, or shorter/longer if desired, depending on available sample length. Because hair on our bodies, for example armpit hair, can lie dormant for up to one year, body hair drug tests search up to 12 months.

Fingernail drug testing searches up to six months in the past. Because drug metabolites can lie dormant in our toenails for up to 12 months, toenail drug tests can yield a detection window of up to 12 months. The reason that we say "up to" for both hair and nail testing is because each individual's hair/nails grow at a different rate.

Hair and fingernail testing are simple specimen collections that yield highly accurate results. In addition, there are no known methods for sample adulteration (hair/fingernail washing will not adulterate the sample). Also, specimen collection is directly observed so the risk of adulteration is reduced dramatically.

Negative results are reported within 24-48 business hours of receipt at the laboratory, and positive results are confirmed using GC/MS (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry) within 48-72 business hours. It is important to note that both hair and fingernail drug testing is legally defensible.

We offer bulk rate pricing on all drug and alcohol testing for businesses!
