Court Ordered Drug Tests
Court ordered drug tests are used in a variety of situations, including arrests for DUI or DWI, probation, and child custody. Remaining drug-free or alcohol-free may be a condition of a court order. Often, the court, or an agreement between the parties, will determine the drug and alcohol testing frequency and guidelines. Court ordered drug tests are common for violations like driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Legal battles involving child custody may include issues of drug or alcohol use or abuse among one (or both) of the former spouses. In order to protect the children, an ongoing program of random drug testing is often agreed upon or ordered by the court. Alternatively, the program may include testing of either spouse at the time of visitation or custody.
The court may order the parties to share in the costs, or to order one party to cover all the drug-testing expenses, or this decision may be covered by a mutual agreement. Regardless, Health Street has the flexibility to work with whatever program is decided upon.

We can contact the parties to alert them when random testing should occur, or, if the determination of testing dates is made by the State or the parties in question, we can simply arrange the tests whenever required.
