Drug Testing

CertifiedBackground.com offers easy-to-use drug testing solutions for both your school and students. We provide access to more than 11,000 collection sites nationwide as well as on-site drug testing kits. We conduct industry standard 5, 7, 9, and 10 panel urine drug tests, along with specialized panels, to detect the use of illegal drugs and commonly abused prescription drugs.

All specimens are analyzed at Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) certified laboratories. Both negative and confirmed positive results are transmitted from the laboratory to the Medical Review Officer (MRO) immediately upon completion of laboratory analysis and Certifying Scientist Review. Negative results are typically returned within 24 hours. All results are then posted on CertifiedBackground.com for your school to easily view.
