What to expect during a test

  • Bring in your government issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, military ID, etc.)
  • If you are taking prescription medication, let the technician know.
  • You will be required to provide a sample of urine within 3 minutes of entering a
    private, single toilet bathroom.

    • If you flush the toilet or break any of the tamper-proof tape, it will be considered invalid.
  • If you are booked in for an express urine test, the technician will then test the urine sample
    for drugs, if negative, results will be released immediately.

    • If you test positive for one or more substances, your sample will be sent to our
      lab & Medial Review Officer, even if you have a valid prescription in hand.
  • If you are booked in for a lab-based urine test, the technician will split the sample
    in front of you, fill out a Chain of Custody, and package the sample to go to the laboratory.

    • Lab results typically take 2-5 business days.
  • If your sample does not meet our collection criteria, you will be instructed to return to
    the waiting room until you can provide an acceptable sample.

    • You will be given 500ml of water and up to three hours to provide a valid sample.
  • If your lab-based drug screen is positive or if your express drug screen is confirmed
    positive at the lab you will be contacted by our medical review officer (MRO).

    • The MRO will contact you with the information you put down on your intake form.
    • Ensure that this information is correct.
  • It is the responsibility of the MRO to determine whether the positive drug screen was due to
    legitimate prescription drug use or if it is due to illegal drug use or prescription drug misuse.
