Drug testing is effective in preventing drug and alcohol use and is used by business, the criminal justice system, parents, and schools. Drug testing, ideally, is one component of an overall treatment plan to help an individual achieve a healthy and productive life.

Primarily three different types of drug tests are offered at TASC:
Urine testing is the most common to monitor day-to-day drug use and is one of the most customizable. It detects recent drug use including a wide range of drugs and prescription medications. This testing method is currently approved by the U.S. government for federally mandated testing.
Oral fluid testing detects very recent drug use in the past 12 to 36 hours. A TASC professional collects saliva with an absorbent device that is placed in the mouth. The test process is quick and tampering with the sample is very difficult.
Hair testing detects drug use over an extended period of time. Head hair samples potentially detect drug use up to 90 days whereas other body hair can potentially detect use over a much longer period of time. At TASC, hair is sampled from three different areas on the crown. The end result is cosmetically undetectable.
Lab Tests Versus Test Kits
TASC provides instant test kits if you and a TASC professional determine this meets your needs. TASC prefers lab-based testing to ensure accurate and comprehensive results. Test kits are limited and do not detect certain drugs.
