Our selection of chain of custody urine drug testing services and drug screenings allow you to test for nearly any drug consumed in the recent past. They are recommended for employee drug testing or court orders. The number of panels in a panel drug test refers to classes of drugs (i.e., marijuana, cocaine, etc.).

The 5 Panel Drug Test test is the traditional, basic urine drug test for street drugs, including:

Marijuana (THC, cannabinoids, weed)
Amphetamines (Adderall, Ritalin, methamphetamines)

MDMA/6AM (Ecstasy, Molly)
Hydromorphone (Vicodan, Percocet, Oxycontin)

16 Panel - $250

As the opioid epidemic continues to rise and impact Boston, it is important to be aware that many of the dangerous, synthetic opiates are not picked up by lower panel tests. Our 16 Panel Opiate Drug Test picks up these 4 additional opiate classes in addition to the drugs included above:

Meperidine (Demerol)
Buprenorphine (Suboxone)

Local Initiatives to Curb Substance Abuse

In March 2023, the FDA approved a 4mg naloxone nasal spray for over-the-counter sale, making it the first such naloxone product. The approval aims to make this life-saving drug accessible in places like drug stores, convenience stores, and online. The transition of Narcan from prescription to OTC status may take months, during which the FDA will work to ensure naloxone's continued availability.

Employment-Related Drug Policies

Massachusetts companies face specific regulations regarding drug testing, especially concerning marijuana. While medical and recreational marijuana use is authorized, employers have the right to impose restrictions and conduct drug testing to ensure workplace safety and compliance with federal regulations​​.

Local Drug Busts or Events

In Boston, a major drug bust led to the arrest of three men for operating a large-scale drug trafficking organization on the North Shore, with an estimated 10 million doses of controlled substances, including fentanyl and methamphetamine, seized. The seized drugs, with a street value of over $8 million, included significant quantities of fentanyl-laced pills designed to resemble candy.

On November 1, 2023, authorities searched four sites. These operations led to the discovery of what's considered one of the most substantial seizures of fentanyl and methamphetamine at a single location in both Massachusetts and the broader region, totaling over 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of substances. Included in this seizure were nine kilograms (20 pounds) of pink, heart-shaped pills infused with fentanyl, crafted to mimic candy.
