Drug Testing

Posted in News & Events, News Articles on 08/18/2014

According to the US Department of Labor, drug use in the workplace costs employers $81 billion annually.  The SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration) states nearly 7 percent of adults employed full time currently use illegal drugs.  For part-time employees, the number of illegal drug users jumps to 9 percent.  Obviously, employees who come to work under the influence of drugs or alcohol can seriously compromise the strength and integrity of your company.  Can you really afford not to drug test your applicants?   BackTrack offers a full line of drug testing, including eScreen Instant 5 Panel, 5 and 10 Panel Urine Analysis, 5 Panel DOT Drug Testing, and 5 Panel Hair Analysis.  BackTrack partners with more than 3,300 SAMSHA/NIDA collection sites throughout the country, which permits us to provide a customized program convenient to your location.  We offer drug-free workplace programs that can be adapted to include testing on a pre-employment or random basis.  BackTrack will provide you will all the necessary forms and supplies to implement your program.  A comprehensive drug screening program will help improve employee morale and productivity, while minimizing absenteeism, accidents, turnover and theft.  Contact BackTrack at (800) 991-9694 for further details.
