We offer DOT-regulated drug and alcohol testing. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is under federal regulation and requires all employees who perform specific jobs or work in certain industries to be tested for drug and alcohol use. The DOT requires that all alcohol and drug testing is completed using the "split sample" method, in which the initial sample is split in two—one to be tested now, and one to be tested later if the first sample returns as positive (so that a confirmation test can be performed).
If you are interested in DOT-regulated drug testing, please give us a call at 1-(866)400-0584 or fill out our contact form to get started.

Cocaine, also referred to as coke or crack, is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug that is made from leaves of the coca plant. It is often injected after being mixed with water, or smoked, snorted, or rubbed on the gums.
Cocaine can be detected in urine for 2-4 days after initially taken. Cocaine use may be detectable via a hair sample for up to 90 days, and in oral fluid from 5 to 48 hours.
About THC (Cannabis/Marijuana)
Marijuana's cannabinoid known as THC can be detected in the urine for 2-7 days after initially taken if used once, or can be detected in the urine for up to 1-2 months if used chronically. THC can be detected in oral fluid for 5-48 hours, and can remain in the hair for up to 90 days.
Opiates (Codeine, Morphine & 6-AM Heroin)
About Opiates (Codeine, Morphine & 6-AM Heroin)
Opiates are pain-relieving drugs derived from opium. This test detects Codeine, Morphine and 6-AM Heroin.
Codeine is an opioid that acts as a cough suppressant and can also produce relaxation and euphoria if consumed at a higher-than-prescribed dose. It is found in some cough syrups, and some people create a drink by mixing it with soda or alcohol. Codeine can be detected in the urine for up to 2 days after initially taken. Codeine can be detected in oral fluid for 5-48 hours, and can remain in the hair for up to 90 days.
Morphine can be detected in the urine for up to 2 days after initially taken. Morphine can be detected in oral fluid for 5-48 hours, and can remain in the hair for up to 90 days.
Heroin is an opiate drug that is derived from morphine. 6-Acetylmorphine (6-AM) is a metabolite of heroin. Heroin itself is not active, but when used it is rapidly converted to 6-Acetylmorphine and then further converts back to morphine. Both 6-AM and morphine are heroin metabolites that are used as painkillers and/or for their euphoric effects. 6-AM is rapidly eliminated and excreted into urine. 6-Acetylmorphine has a detection window period in urine of less than 24 hours after initially used-- Therefore, urine that is negative for 6-AM does not exclude heroin abuse, but its presence does confirm it.
Heroin and its metabolite 6-acetylmorphine can be detected in a hair sample for up to 90 days.
About Phencyclidine (PCP)
Phencyclidine (PCP) can be detected in the urine for up to 14 days after initially taken, or for up to 30 days if chronically used. Phencyclidine can be detected in oral fluid for 5-48 hours, and can remain in the hair for up to 90 days.
Nicotine is metabolized in the liver to cotinine. Nicotine in tobacco products such as cigarettes, pipe tobacco, cigars, or chew, is an addicting substance that causes individuals to continue use of tobacco despite concerted efforts to quit.
EtG, or ethyl glucuronide, is a byproduct of ethanol (alcohol that one drinks) and glucuronide a common biological compound made in the liver that binds various toxins and drugs in the body that allows them to be excreted in the urine. EtG is formed when someone drinks even relatively small amounts of alcohol, and can be detected in the urine. EtG can be found in the urine much longer than alcohol in the blood or breath. After a few drinks, EtG can be present in the urine up to 48 hours, and sometimes up to 72 or hours or longer if the drinking is heavier.
Kratom is a currently legal recreational drug that is relatively new to the United States. It is derived from leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa tree (kratom or ketum tree) found in Southeast Asia. The DEA lists Kratom as a "Drug and Chemical of Concern.” Kratom in small doses has a stimulating effect, and in larger doses acts as a sedative.
Synthetic cannabinoids refer to a growing number of man-made mind-altering chemicals that are either sprayed on dried, shredded plant material to be smoked or sold as liquids to be vaporized and inhaled. Synthetic cannabinoids are designer drugs that are chemically different from, but attempt to mimic the effect of natural cannabinoids.
