Drug Testing in Evanston, Illinois

Evanston IL Drug Testing Locations

Types of Drug Tests in Evanston, Illinois clinics:

In Evanston, Health Street offers the widest variety and selection of drug tests anywhere, which allows you to choose from any panel you wish, with rapid results or sent to our lab, using a urine sample or a hair sample. Most of our tests have an option to add alcohol or remove THC from the screening, so that we can always meet your specific requirements.

The number of urine drug testing services and drug screening panels that we offer means that you can test for nearly any drug.

The most basic test we offer is a 5 Panel Drug Test – $75, which tests for:

Marijuana (THC, cannabinoids, weed)
Phencyclidine (PCP – angel dust)
Amphetamines (Adderall, Ritalin, methamphetamines)
Basic Opiates (heroin, morphine, codeine)

The next option up from there is the 9 Panel Drug Test – $85, which adds in some commonly abused prescriptions:

Benzodiazepines (Valium, Klonopin, Xanax)

The popular 10 Panel Drug Test – $89 adds in methaqualone.

***12 Panel – Comprehensive Urine Test***

When asked, we often recommend the 12 Panel Drug Test – $149 because it is a well rounded test that screens for common opioids and ecstasy, including:

MDMA/6AM (Ecstasy, Molly)
Expanded opiate class: Oxycodone, Oxymorphone, Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone (Vicodan, Percocet, Oxycontin)

If you’re at all concerned with opiate usage beyond basic painkillers, just as many people in Evanston are, consider registering for a 16 Panel Opiate Drug Test – $250. These synthetic opiates are not picked up by lesser panel tests.

Meperidine (Demerol)
Buprenorphine (Suboxone)

The above is just a sampling of the wide variety of urine tests we offer. You can view all urine drug screens offered at our Evanston IL drug testing center, which includes tests that go up to 22 panels, specialized tests for synthetic marijuana and bath salts, ketamine and rohypnol, GHB and more.
