A Fast and Reliable Drug Screening Process
What is a hair drug test?
A Hair sample drug testing (misunderstood as a hair follicle drug test) screens for illicit drug and prescription medication misuse. During this test, a small amount of Hair is removed from your head using scissors (about 1.5 in). The Hair sample is then sent to our certified laboratory and analyzed for signs of drug use during the last 70- 90 days preceding the test. Hair sample drug testing is typically used to test for:
- Opioids (codeine, morphine, 6-acetyl morphine)
While a urine drug screen can detect if you've used drugs in the last 2-4 days, a hair drug test can detect and report drug use in the past 70- 90 days.
Your workplace may request a Hair test to screen for illicit drug use before hire or randomly during employment. Some research also indicates that hair drug testing can be useful for monitoring drug use in at-risk individuals.
