Many Colorado employers require job applicants to complete a drug screen prior to starting work, and other companies ask their employees to do random drug testing. Each company has their own preference on when to test, what drugs to test for, and sometimes drug testing regulations are determined by industry or federal law.
Two of the most common drug tests we perform are 5-panel and 10-panel drug tests. Results will show a positive or negative status for each class of drug, and details can be found below.
The two most common types of drug tests and screenings are hair and urine tests. Hair samples detect prior drug use from months ago because hair growth is slow, but urine tests are more common because the samples are easier to obtain and can be quickly tested.
Health screenings are performed to ensure everything in your body is working right. The information from these screenings helps your clinician any health problems and risk factors so we can address them immediately. Health screenings can also determine if you can safely perform your job, or return to work after an illness or injury.
