Types of Substance Abuse Drugs Testing
There are literally dozens of different types of substances (drugs) that people abuse. These drugs have varying effects on behavior and manifest themselves in a host of symptoms. Substances fall into several categories, such as uppers vs. downers and street vs. prescription. It is possible to detect nearly any of these with a laboratory test. It's important to note, there are several different types of drug tests. Each one is set up to screen for a certain set of drugs. The type of drug needs be included in the testing panel for it to be detected by the test. We can screen for drugs or any other illegal substances through urine (urine drug testing), blood, hair or sweat.
