Substance Abuse Testing
Substance abuse testing refers to drug testing for various substances. There are literally dozens of different substances 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 substance with a drug test. However, not all drug tests are the same. Each test is set up to look for a certain set of drugs. The drug in question must be included in the testing panel for it to be detected by the screening.
