Drug Test - Urine - 10 Substances
Although testing can determine drugs of abuse, some can also be legally used to treat legitimate medical conditions. Many people feel the 10 panel drug is superior to other tests like the SAMHSA-5 because it screens for more drugs and may catch illegal use of many prescription drugs that are readily available. The problem for employers is that some of these drugs are not illegal and testing for nonillegal drugs has been viewed by some employees as an invasion of privacy and/or a violation the American with Disabilities Act.
There are a number of places that will use a 10 panel drug test; in particular, Law Enforcement Agencies, court systems, driver's license restoration, colleges and EMS programs.
Whether an employer is trying to maintain a drug free work place or a parent is trying to keep their child drug free in this complex world, drug testing is very prevalent today. Precautions are used to ensure a fresh specimen, testing accuracy and that the urine sample is actually the donor's.
