Are we a medical facility? Why is this important?

No! We are not a medical clinic or doctor’s office. We are a full service drug and alcohol collection facility, a third party collection site and an employment screening firm. A full service drug and alcohol collection facility and third party collection site are dedicated to drug and alcohol testing and the importance of proper collections procedures.  It is also our first priority unlike a medical facility.   Medical facilities have to attend to all medical issues first. Our wait times are much less than a doctor’s office, walk-in medical clinic or a hospital. This benefit will save your company time and money not having an employee sitting in a waiting room waiting to be seen after all medical events and appointments.


How long will it take to get drug test results back on our applicants and employees?

We understand the need for fast, accurate, reliable, cost effective results. Our dependable turnaround times assist in timely hiring decisions. Specimen are sent out overnight to the testing laboratory. Negative results are often released within 24 hours, the next business day. Non-negative results undergo confirmatory testing and are typically released within 48 to 72 hours, two to three business days.


Do you offer on-site collections?
