Employee Drug and Alcohol Testing Services

Keep Your Organization Drug and Alcohol Free with Substance Abuse Testing

Barada works with leading employment law experts to ensure all our criminal background checks are conducted in a legal, responsible fashion.

Why Should Employers Order Drug and Alcohol Testing?

More and more companies are doing drug testing in the workplace, and there are several reasons why company drug testing is so important. Everyone has a responsibility in fighting the war on substance abuse. When companies perform drug testing in the workplace, they are helping the community.

When employees have drugs in their system, they are likely to be less productive than those who don’t have drugs in their system. If the employees are doing drugs while they are working, they will be even less productive. Employees under the influence are also a risk to other employees, customers, and society itself.

How Barada Performs Substance Abuse Testing

In order to further simplify your pre-employment screening process, Barada Associates is pleased to facilitate a non-DOT drug testing program.

Barada Associates partners with a network of reputable, national laboratories from Quest and LabCorp to process five-panel and 10-panel urinalysis, hair testing and Breathalyzer drug tests at convenient locations throughout the United States. For HR Managers with appropriate experience and policies, we can provide instant-read tests for immediate results at your location.

Standard tests screen for such substances as THC (Marijuana), Cocaine (Crack), Methamphetamine (Ecstasy), Amphetamine, Opiates (Morphine), PCP, Methadone, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines and Tricyclic Antidepressants. Additional drugs and chemicals can also be searched upon request.

We handle all chain of custody documents to ensure their veracity and in many cases offer electronic chains of custody (depending upon the location).

Test results are returned for client review securely and confidentially through Barada Online. Each positive return is verified by an MRO (Medical Review Officer)—a licensed medical doctor who is an expert in the substance abuse testing field.

When Should Companies Consider Performing Drug and Alcohol Testing

There are a variety of circumstances under which an organization may require a drug test. Most commonly:

  • Before hiring a job candidate
  • Reasonable suspicion
  • After an accident
  • Randomly
  • Periodically
  • Returning from planned extended absence
  • Returning from a probationary period
  • Before a promotion
  • Voluntarily
