How do doctors test for drugs and alcohol?
There are many different ways that a doctor can perform a drug screen. Common drug testing methods include urinalysis, breath tests, mouth swabs, hair tests, blood draws, and even sweat tests can be performed. Perspiration tests are generally time consuming and not often used because they are relatively new and require the person being tested to wear skin patches for approximately 2 weeks. For employers, sweat testing is not a cost-effective method to use for testing employees. Hair follicle and saliva testing are more popular than sweat tests, but still less often utilized than other methods. Hair follicle tests can detect drug use after a longer elapsed time than other methods, while mouth swabs can only detect drug use for a short period of time. Blood draws allow for extremely accurate test results, while urine samples are the most popular way for doctors to administer drug tests.
Why do employers require drug tests for potential employees?
Drug testing helps employers screen potential employees and ensure they are choosing the best possible people for their job openings. Drug use has been linked to decreased productivity and increased safety issues on the job for some positions, as well as increasing the cost of healthcare in the long-term. Drug tests are used to deter potential employees from abusing illicit substances and to ensure a safe work environment for every employee. Drug screenings also help employers identify employees who may have a drug or alcohol problem and refer them to appropriate programs if necessary. Drug testing improves morale and workplace safety.
Who will be able to see the results of my drug test?
The results of a person’s drug test are considered personal health information, which means there will be restrictions regarding who can see these results. Employees who undergo drug testing must typically sign off on the release of their results to their employer or potential employer so they may be shared by the doctor performing the test.
