Bath Salts Urine Drug Test
Health Street offers bath salts drug testing due to the highly dangerous nature of these substances. Even though this class of drugs is commonly referred to as bath salts, it has nothing to do with taking a bath. This “clever” marketing name allows these synthetic drugs to be easily accessible at head shops and other legal venues, sold under the radar of regulators. Some of the chemicals that are included in bath salts are considered Schedule I substances, which is the most restrictive group of substances under the the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Controlled Substances Act.
Registering for a bath salt drug test is quick and easy. You’ll enter your ZIP code and then select the location that you or the person you’re testing would like to be tested at. As soon as the registration process is completed, you’ll receive an email with directions to the clinic as well as a barcode to show upon arrival—and remember to bring your photo ID. Bath salt drug test results are reported quickly and securely online. Individuals and employers can register online or call (888) 378-2499 to order tests.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do Bath Salts Work?
The chemicals in bath salts work in the brain in a variety of ways. Just like ecstasy, Molly, and methamphetamines, they raise the level of the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain. They also raise the levels of serotonin like LSD. Although bath salts were not illegal when they were first introduced, hence further increasing their desirability, regulations have gone into place as their dangers have been realized. In July of 2012, President Obama signed a law making both mephedrone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), the most common synthetic cathinones, illegal. However, it is important to note that actual bath salts, made from Epsom salt, have no relation to the drug and are very safe to use.
What Are Bath Salts?
Bath salts are relatively new on the drug scene and can be made from a variety of synthetic cathinones, with mephedrone (known by the street names Drone, Meph, and Meow Meow) and MDPV being the most popular. The drug can be found both online and at drug paraphernalia stores, and is usually marketed as plant food, jewelry cleaner, or phone screen cleaner, often under brand names such as Lunar or Ivory Wave, Vanilla Sky, Bloom, Cloud Nine, White Lightning, and Scarface.
What Class of Drugs Are Bath Salts?
Bath salts are synthetic stimulants also known as synthetic cathinones. In other words, these are manmade substances created to imitate the effects of other drugs like ecstasy or cocaine.
What Do Bath Salts Look Like?
Since these substances are disguised as a variety of other products labeled “not for human consumption,” they may be found in a variety of forms. Most often, they will be found in the form of a powder or crystal, but might also be found as a capsule.
What Is the Difference Between a Bath Salts Urine Drug Test and a Combined Bath Salt Drug Test?
We offer several different combinations of bath salt drug testing depending on which substances need to be tested. If bath salts are the only concern, then we recommend our standard bath salts urine drug test.
For more comprehensive testing, consider selecting the option to include a standard K2 drug test or an expanded K2 drug test. Just like bath salts, some of the chemicals used in K2 belong to the most restrictive group of substances under the Controlled Substances Act. Testing for these two substances covers two highly dangerous drugs.
Selecting the option to include a 12 panel drug test is best if you’re looking to test for a much wider range of drugs, including K2, bath salts, multiple street drugs, and some prescription drugs. The 12 panel drug test is often selected by employers due to its thorough coverage.
What Are Some of the Dangers of Bath Salts?
The abuse of bath salts can result in many serious side effects, including extreme paranoia, hallucinations, psychotic and violent behavior, rapid heart rate, elevated body temperature, increased blood pressure, dehydration, breakdown of muscle tissue, kidney failure, and many others. The potential for addiction to bath salts is high, which may even lead to a fatal overdose. If the use of bath salts is suspected, it is crucial that drug testing is done as soon as possible.
