About 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol

List of drugs detected by 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol

How to Register

Registering for a 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol is fast and easy for companies or individuals. The lab location is chosen during the drug testing registration process based on the ZIP code you enter. A Nine Panel Plus Urine Alcohol costs $125.00.

Status notifications

Once registered, a barcode authorization and a map with the clinic address is immediately sent via email. Employers can choose to provide the employee’s cell phone number to enable instant text messaging of the barcode and clinic address, or else they can simply forward the email registration to their candidate or employee at their convenience. The barcode is then presented to the professional technician at the chosen drug testing facility along with government issued photo ID, and the test is administered. Status notifications are sent throughout the process. The person who placed the order is notified when the registrant completes the drug test. Additional notifications are sent when the urine specimen reaches the lab, and, of course, when the results are ready to review securely online.

Urine Drug Test Facts

  • 1) Urine drug testing is the most common method for detecting and deterring drug use in the workplace
  • 2) Each urine drug test is designed to screen for a specific panel of drugs; not every test detects the same drugs. It is important to specify which drugs need to be tested before ordering a test.
  • 3) Some urine drug tests can provide instant results for negative screens, but non-negatives always get sent to a lab for confirmation testing
  • 4) It is difficult to cheat a 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol, particularly because it is very difficult to substitute a urine specimen at the correct body temperature
  • 5) Ingested drugs are almost immediately present in the urine, while other methods of drug testing require some time to pass before the drugs are detectable

Urine Drug Test Results

The result of a 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol is reported in a secure PDF files which detail the list of the tested drugs. For each class of drugs, there is an indication of Positive or Negative. If a drug comes back positive, the specific metabolite which tested positive will be specifically indicated. Quantitative levels for positive results are available upon request. The PDF file can be easily downloaded from our portal, printed, or forwarded. We are also happy to send or fax drug test results to any person, employer, or organization that needs to get a copy of the report.

How long do results take?

Negative urine drug tests typically come back the next business day, but in some cases can take longer. If the screening is not negative, further testing is required. Our lab will run a GC/MS confirmation test on all non-negatives, which provides an official, quantitative measurement of the level of drugs in the system. Confirmation testing takes approximately 3-5 days.

Staff Glass™… the Employer eResults Portal

Business users get free access to our secure Employer eResults Portal, StaffGlass, to place orders, view test results, manage employees and eSignature documents (such as policies and procedures), update random drug testing pools, and register for background checks. Non-business clients get results via email and/or fax.

Urine Drug Test Detection Times

In general, the window of detection for a 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol is up to a week. However, this varies depending on several factors. Typically, “harder” drugs like cocaine exit the system faster, while “softer” drugs like marijuana tend to stay around for a while. The amount of the drug ingested also plays a role; the more a person takes of a given substance, the longer it can be found in a urine test. Frequency of use is also a factor; a single use may not show up on a urine test for very long, while repetitive usage can be detected for a longer period of time. Finally, an individual’s metabolism plays a role. Some people simply metabolize drugs and excrete them from their systems faster than others.

SAMHSA Certified Laboratory and MRO

Like all of our lab based tests, 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohols are processed at a SAMHSA Certified laboratory. Results are reviewed by one of our Medical Review Officers (MRO). Our MROs are licensed physicians and toxicology experts. If the result of a urine drug test is non-negative, the MRO will reach out to the person to ask about prescription medications and, if appropriate, to request proof. Once that conversation with the doctor takes place, and the person has a chance to provide proof of any prescriptions, the MRO will release the final results, which will be reported to the Employer or person who requested the test.

What can be found in a 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol

The following drugs show up on a 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol:

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Propoxyphene
  • Barbiturates
  • Methadone
  • PCP
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Basic opiates
  • Amphetamines

Alcohol

Ethyl alcohol, also called ethanol or just plain alcohol, becomes present in the urine a short while after a person begins to drink beer, wine, or liquor, and lasts for a few hours after they have fully sobered up. A 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol looks for the actual ethyl alcohol in the urine rather than looking for any metabolites that may have been produced by the body from processing the drinks.

While a breathalyzer only detects the level alcohol that is currently in the blood, a urine test will pick up alcohol for a short while past the point where a person has fully sobered up. Essentially, the presence of alcohol in the urine is on a slight delay behind the alcohol in the blood. Therefore, a positive result on a Nine Panel Plus Urine Alcohol does not necessarily indicate current intoxication. Rather, a positive result would indicate the consumption of alcohol over the prior 12 hours.

Benzodiazepines

Benzodiazepines commonly known by the product names of Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, and Librium, are primarily prescribed by doctors to treat patients with anxiety, insomnia, seizures, panic attacks, and alcohol withdrawal. Additionally, this class of medicines is often used to control prolonged epileptic seizures. Other physician monitored uses include presurgical sedation and treatment of involuntary movement disorders.

While episodic and short-term use of benzodiazepines is generally safe, longer term use is discouraged. Notably, benzodiazepines are very dangerous during pregnancy. These medications have been linked to birth defects if taken during the first trimester. The drug is also passed along to an infant through its mother’s breast milk.

Benzodiazepines usage can lead to disorientation; driving and operating heavy machinery should be avoided when taking this medication. Furthermore, when mixed with alcohol, the sedative effects are dangerously enhanced. It is illegal to take benzodiazepines without a prescription.  Even with a valid prescription, someone can still abuse the drug by taking it more frequently or in higher quantities than prescribed. Health Street’s Nine Panel Plus Urine Alcohol detects the precise level of benzaodiazepines in the urine with a look back period of approximately three to seven days.

Propoxyphene

Propoxyphene is a narcotic cough suppressant and pain reliever. Propoxyphene decreases discomfort and increases pain tolerance in individuals who are experiencing pain. Although the drug takes the edge off, the pain is still apparent and not completely absent. Propxyphone is legal in the United States and is often prescribed as an alternative to stronger pain medications such as morphine, hydroquinone and codeine.

Brand names of Propxyphene include Darvocet and Darvon. Propoxyphene is most often taken orally, injected or chewed but is sometimes snorted by addicts after being crushed.

When Propoxyphene is combined with other drugs like muscle relaxers or alcohol, it can have an extremely dangerous effect on the brain, sometimes resulting in coma. Propoxyphene is habit forming and highly addictive. Even when taken with a prescription, it can be extremely dangerous in a work environment that involves machinery or driving. Health Street’s Nine Panel Plus Urine Alcohol detects Propoxyphene for about 5 to 7 days.

Barbiturates

Barbiturates are central nervous system depressants or “downers”. They calm a person down, and sometimes make the person sleepy. Barbiturates were popular as a party drug in the 1970s, and are still legally available by prescription; however, because they are highly addictive, they are rarely prescribed any longer.

Barbiturate are most often used to control seizures, to deal with extreme anxiety, or for short-term sleep issues (including helping a patient sleep before surgery). Because of the calming effect the drugs have on people, legal use can easily lead to abuse. This is done by using the drug more often than needed or after it is no longer prescribed. Barbiturates are obtained on the black market from drug dealers. Barbiturate abuse is dangerous, and in the worst cases can lead to a coma or even death.

Common signs and symptoms of barbiturates usage are severe confusion, lack of coordination, and slurred speech. When these symptoms become noticeable, it is a signal that the person may be using more and more of the drug and is possibly dependent on it. Health Street tests for barbiturates in our Nine Panel Plus Urine Alcohol. Barbiturates shows up in this urine screening for up to five days.

Methadone

Methadone is a controversial but legal prescription pain reliever in the opioid family. It is most often used as part of drug addiction detoxification and maintenance program. The intended use of Methadone is to counteract the effects of opiates such as heroin or other narcotic drugs by blocking, at the spinal cord, the high that is caused by opiates. Methadone reduces withdrawal symptoms of opiates for 24 to 36 hours, decreasing the likelihood of an opiate relapse.

Methadone keeps users from experiencing the physical and psychological highs and lows often brought about by the changing levels of opiates in the blood. When using Methadone as part of a treatment plan for drug abuse, it is usually given to former heroin users at a clinic or special pharmacy.

Methadone is detectable in the urine with a look back period of approximately three to seven days.

PCP

Angel Dust (PCP) is a wildly dangerous drug, making users feel invincible and often leading to violence, injuries, and death. PCP shows up on our 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol.

PCP was created as a surgical anesthetic in 1926. However, the side effects were so severe that the use of PCP was soon banned. Reports from patients of the day reflect the same intense side effects reported from present day users, including mania, delirium, and hallucinations. In 1967, PCP was briefly sold as a veterinary anesthetic, but it was quickly withdrawn. Virtually all employment urine drug testing includes a screening for PCP.

Angel Dust (PCP) is both an upper and a downer; it’s classified as a dissociative anesthetic. The effects of PCP are unpredictable, giving users an “out of body” feeling with a numbing effect on the mind. PCP has earned its reputation as the “scariest” drug because of the gruesome behavior reported widely in high profile incidents. In 2002, rapper Big Lurch was sentenced to life in prison after murdering his roommate and eating parts of her body while under the influence of PCP. Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was reportedly using Angel Dust before killing an associate and, eventually, himself. Clearly it is vital that anyone suspected of using this substance be tested immediately. PCP shows up on a 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol for about 5 days.

Marijuana

Marijuana, commonly known as weed, grass, or pot, comes from the Cannabis plant and contains the psychoactive drug THC. Other than tobacco and alcohol, marijuana is the most popular recreational drug in America. Marijuana can be found in a 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol.

Laws regarding the legality of marijuana are in rapid transition; several states have legalized recreational usage of weed, and many more have legalized medical uses. However, the federal government continues to classify marijuana as a Schedule 1 substance. Schedule 1 is the most stringent class, reserved only for drugs that have the highest potential for abuse and no accepted medical purposes. While there is fierce debate over this classification, the varying legal standards has created mass uncertainty for employers and employment drug testing with respect to testing urine for marijuana.

Smoking is the most common way to use marijuana. There are different ways to smoke weed: smoking pot from a pipe or water-pipe is referred to as “smoking a bong”; smoking grass that was placed in an empty cigar is called “smoking a blunt”; and, smoking weed rolled into a cigarette wrapper is referred to as a “smoking a joint”. Marijuana can also be baked into food and prepared into what is commonly called “edibles”. Hash brownies are a popular form of marijuana edibles. The method of ingestion method can impact the intensity of psychoactive effect on the user. It can also affect how long marijuana can last in the user’s system and how long it will show up on a urine drug test.

Individuals smoke marijuana to elevate mood and promote relaxation. However, side effects can and do occur, most commonly including paranoia, anxiety, lack of focus and attention, and poor driving. Indicators of marijuana usage include bloodshot or swollen eyes, dry mouth, accelerated heart rate, and loss of coordination. While it is virtually impossible to die from a marijuana overdose, large amounts of the drug can cause extreme panic attacks leading to dangerous and possibly fatal consequences. The main dangers associated with marijuana involve long term use. Individuals who use weed over an extended period of time frequently report concentration problems, memory issues, and lung trouble. Weed can be found in a Nine Panel Plus Urine Alcohol

Employers have a right to conduct urine tests for marijuana even in states where recreational use is permitted, since marijuana use is illegal at the federal level. urine drug testing is often done on a pre-employment, random, and reasonable suspicion basis. Families continue to have a right to test their teens and college age children to ensure they remain drug free. THC is detectable by a urine drug screen panel for up to 5 to 10 days in someone who engages in occasional use. However, the chemical compounds in marijuana are fat-soluble; therefore, heavy users can retain THC metabolites in one’s fat tissues for an extended period of time, and it may be detected in a urine test for a much longer period of time.

Cocaine

Cocaine is a powerful, expensive, street drug that makes users feel energized and strong. Street names like “blow” hint at the snorting of the powdered form of cocaine, which allows it to enter the body via the nasal passages. From there, it goes directly into the bloodstream and quickly impacts the central nervous system. “Coke” can also be smoked or injected. Cocaine shows up on a urine drug test for up to a week.

Cocaine creates a high that is both euphoric, energetic, and short lived – only about a half-hour. Signs of cocaine use include extreme energy, feelings of power, paranoia, and anxiety. Physical indicators include dilated pupils, exuberant speech, and, of course, the telltale sniffing. A 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol is very effective at finding evidence of cocaine use.

Many people ask if “crack” is the same thing as cocaine. Crack is actually cocaine processed into crystallized form for smoking. It has the same effect on the user, but the high comes even faster, and it packs a stronger punch. On the other hand, the high from smoking crack lasts a shorter period of time – just minutes – compared with snorting cocaine. Thus, addicts tend to light up more often and binge to sustain their addiction. Employers who wish to avoid the dangers and high cost of employing cocaine users conduct urine drug testing.

Long term cocaine use has very serious side effects, including heart damage, stroke, and cardiac arrest. Users often combine cocaine with other drugs like alcohol (known as “polydrug abuse”). This combination can create a fatal metabolite called cocaethylene, which can cause heart stoppage. Another deadly combination is cocaine and heroin, known as “speedballing”, which often leads to overdose or death. Families and employers who suspect cocaine use or just wish to deter it should request a urine drug screenings that includes this dangerous drug.

Basic opiates

Our 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol picks up three basic opiates: codeine, morphine, and heroin. Of the three, heroin is by far the most addictive and dangerous. Morphine is a natural substance that comes from the opium poppy plant, and heroin is actually synthesized from morphine. Heroin essentially changes back to morphine once ingested, but it is faster acting and more powerful. Users can become addicted to heroin after a single dose. Testing urine for drugs is an effective way to deter or identify heroin use.

Heroin users inject, smoke or inhale the drug. Once in the blood, it travels to the brain rapidly to bind to opioid receptors and create a feeling of euphoria. Injecting creates the most powerful effect, sending users a warm rush of bliss before they go “on the nod” – a street term that refers to a drowsy state. After using heroin, urine drug screen panels can detect it for around 3 to 5 days

Once dependent on heroin, users will experience harsh withdrawal symptoms if they attempt to quit. Symptoms include restlessness, muscle and bone pain, and insomnia. Heroin withdrawal is the source of many common street phrases associated with drug abuse. For example, “kicking the habit” refers to the involuntary kicking movements when coming off of this opioid. It is essential to continuously monitor former users for years following a successful recovery, and a program of random urine drug testing is a crucial component of this effort.

Untreated heroin addiction becomes more and more dangerous, as users build up a tolerance. The more addicted they become, the more it takes to get them high. For this reason, it is very easy to overdose. The danger of overdose can actually increase during any attempt to quit. Heroin overdose is a medical emergency that can lead to death. Establishing a pre-employment urine drug testing program is one way for businesses to maintain a safe work environment.

Amphetamines

Amphetamines are a group of synthetic stimulants that include legal prescriptions, like Adderall,and illegally manufactured methamphetamines. Prescription amphetamines typically come in pill form and are ingested orally, while methamphetamines are typically smoked. Both of these types of amphetamines can be found in a 9 Panel Plus Urine Alcohol, and, if positive, the results will clearly distinguish between them.

Most people know that amphetamines are often used as a treatment for attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Strangely, “speed” has the paradoxical effect of creating mental focus and thus reducing hyperactivity. Somehow, a mind that is racing – and therefore unfocused – achieves clarity and focus when given a stimulant, amphetamines. Some weight loss products also contain amphetamines. More than ever, college kids are using amphetamines to keep themselves awake or to create laser like tunnel vision in an effort to stay focused for long hours while studying. Even those who have prescriptions for this drug to treat a legitimate medical need can become psychologically convinced that they cannot study effectively without taking it. To counter to this trend, families as well as businesses frequently request urine drug tests.

Many families with college age students request ongoing, random urine drug screen panels such as the Nine Panel Plus Urine Alcohol to identify and prevent use of unauthorized prescriptions like Adderall. On the other hand, methamphetamines, produced by illegal meth labs in the U.S. and abroad, is far more dangerous. The drug known as “crystal meth” achieved notoriety in the smash TV series “Breaking Bad”, which also exposed its dangers. Small doses of meth stimulate the user and cause weight loss; large doses and frequent use, however, lead to addiction and devastating side effects, including blurred vision, severe dental decay, and convulsions.

Meth users can stay awake for long periods of time without sleep. Noticeable weight loss that’s not attributed to exercise or dietary changes can be a sign of methamphetamine use. Because this drug has dangerous side effects, including violence, it is vital for employers of any size to include amphetamines as a part of their employment drug testing program. It can be detected in the urine for three to five days.
