Drug & Alcohol Testing
Drug and Alcohol testing is available for a variety of purposes, including:
• employment screens;
• judicial and social services cases;
• academic, institutional, and athletic program screens;
• both DOT and non-DOT requirements, and
• for any industry that deals with sensitive, often personal concerns.
These tests provide assurances that personnel who are performing sensitive functions are healthy and able to do so. At the same time, we respect and rigorously protect individual privacy while collecting and appropriately sharing the samples we test. The conclusions drawn based on our testing reduce employer/superior exposure to liability as well as any adverse impacts on the organization’s cultural and moral standards.

SmarTest Labs applies rigorous quality standards and adheres to strict chain-of-custody requirements with every test we conduct. Our partnerships with regulated labs and Medical Review Officers facilitate evaluated testing of outcomes to ensure that each test is accurate, appropriately identified, and fully admissible in court.
At SmarTest Labs, we work collaboratively with you to ensure we understand the exact type of test you need before suggesting which test(s) to order.
