Urine Drug Tests
Urine drug tests are an effective and inexpensive method of identifying drug use in the recent past. Employers and individuals seeking a cost-effective and time-tested method for detecting virtually any drug choose urine screenings. There are many advantages of urine testing. Drugs rapidly make their way into a person's urine, and thus can be detected almost immediately after consumption. It is very difficult (though not impossible) to cheat a properly administered urine test, despite the preponderance of legends to the contrary. And, urine is universally available in humans, unlike the other bodily specimens that can be tested (such as hair).

Why use Health Street for urine drug screenings?>
Health Street conducts tens of thousands of these tests every year. All urine specimens go to a SAMHSA certified laboratory for testing. If the initial screening is non-negative, all of our tests include GC/MS (gas chromatography/mass spectrometry) confirmation testing. There are many versions of our urine drug test, including tests for a single substance, or panels that include up to twelve or more classes of drugs.
Health Street’s lab-based tests are reviewed by one of our certified Medical Review Officers (MROs) prior to the release of results, which allows people who are taking prescribed medication a chance to explain that to our doctors. Legally prescribed medications that are taken consistent with the prescribed dosage will be listed as “negative” on the final report.
Urine specimens are collected by professional technicians at one of our 2500 clinics across the United States. If you have 10 or more employees to be tested at the same time, we can schedule to come to your location for on-site testing. On-site testing costs a little more, but it saves time and labor expenses; it's particularly beneficial for non-standard shift workers who aren't working during normal clinic hours.
You are encouraged to discuss your drug testing requirements with one of our representatives. We can assist you in the development, design and implementation of a urine drug testing program that will meet your company, personal, or court-related objectives. Just call (888) 378-2499 for assistance.
