Laboratory drug testing is used to determine if a person has recently been under the influence of various substances. Some of the drugs which are most commonly tested for are Marijuana (Cannabis), Cocaine, Amphetamines, Opiates, and Phencyclidine (PCP). As drugs are broken down and metabolized by the body, various detectable compounds are filtered out. The most popular form of drug testing uses a urine sample to detect these metabolites that have been expelled from the body. Urine testing is often done because it uses a noninvasive method of specimen collection and is typically more affordable than other testing methods. Blood testing can also be used, especially if one wants to detect if a particular drug is still present in someone’s system. However, blood testing is generally more costly and doesn’t necessarily provide any more accuracy in detecting past use than a urine test. Hair follicle testing can be used to detect drug use up to several months in the past. Hair testing is not commonly used for workplace testing but can be useful when someone is required to prove they have been drug free for a longer period of time. It is important to note that no drug test can accurately determine how long it has been since a person has used drugs. The length of time a particular drug is detectable in a person’s system depends on a number of factors including the type of drug, how much was taken, how long a person has been taking the drug, and the individual’s metabolism.
Drug testing is most commonly ordered by companies to screen potential employees or as random testing for current employees. Studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Labor indicate that as many as 10 million workers in the United States are drug users. Drug abusers can cost their employers as much as $15,000 more per year than other employees in lost productivity, absenteeism, turnover, and medical costs. Studies have shown that both employers and employees recognize the benefits of policies whose goal is to produce a drug free workplace.
