Drug Testing

DGL offers toxicology testing. Substance abuse testing is required by Federal and State statutes for many safety sensitive positions. Testing has also become an integral part of many employers' >health and safety programs. Studies have shown employees who are substance abusers are:

  • Less productive
  • Use more sick days
  • Use more medical benefits
  • More likely to have on-the-job accidents
Aside from these costs, the impact on non-using employees who feel anger and resentment toward the abuser affects company morale and profitability.

Why Utilize Worksite Substance Abuse Testing?

  • To comply with federally mandated employee drug testing
  • To provide a drug-free workplace environment for employees
  • To monitor a patient in treatment
DGL can offer a program to meet all of your needs. Through chain-of-custody procedures and Medical Review Officer evaluation, DGL will provide fully defensible results, in a timely manner, which comply with the requirements of the Federal Drug Free Workplace Act and Omnibus Crime Legislation.

While the main focus is on laboratory testing, DGL is able to provide assistance in all facets of a comprehensive substance abuse testing program including on-site rapid drug testing.

Providing a Comprehensive Program

A complete substance abuse program consists of the following major components:
  • A written Substance Abuse Policy
  • An Employee Education and Awareness Program
  • A Supervisor Training Program
  • An Employee Assistance Program
  • A Drug Testing Program with MRO Certification
If you currently have portions of such a program in effect, we can help you complete your program. If you are just beginning the process, DGL will assist you in the establishment of a comprehensive substance abuse program within your organization.
