What you should Expect - How to Prepare for your Drug & Alcohol Test | ICON​​

WHAT NOT TO DO – RECOMMENDATIONS:

 - DO NOT drink excessive amounts of water prior to a drug test. Your typical level of water consumption is   

                     recommended. Drinking excessive amounts of water may cause your urine to be too dilute to test.


 - DO NOT use an alcohol-based mouthwash within 15 minutes of your scheduled test


 - DO NOT shave your head if you are scheduled for a hair drug test. Typically, 1.5" of hair is needed to properly                     
administer the test.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU ARRIVE:

 - You will first be required to present some form of government issued photo ID when you come in for your

   appointment


 - If you are scheduled for a private appointment, payment must be made prior to testing. The acceptable forms 

   of payment on-site are cash, debit or credit card.

 - Once your ID is verified, you will receive paperwork to fill out which includes an authorization allowing us to

   perform the test(s) and provide the results to your employer/potential employer.

 - You will also have a short form to fill out indicating your contact information and any prescription or over the
counter drugs that you are currently using.

Specific Testing Expectations.


Urine Drug Testing

 - You will be required to provide a sample of urine within 3 minutes of entering a private, single toilet

   bathroom. If you flush the toilet after providing the sample, it will be considered invalid.


 - Once you have provided a sample, the tester will ensure it meets our collection criteria.


 - If you are booked in for an express urine test, the tester will then test the urine sample for drugs.

 - If you are booked in for a lab-based urine test, the tester will split the sample in front of you, fill out a chain of

   custody form, and package the sample to go to the laboratory. Lab results typically take 2-5 business days.


 - If your sample does not meet our collection criteria, you will be instructed to return to the waiting room until

   you can provide an acceptable sample. You will be given up to three hours to provide a valid sample.


 - If your lab based drug screen is positive or if your express drug screen is confirmed positive at the lab you will

   be contacted by one of our Certified Collectors. They will contact you with the information you put down on

   your intake form. Ensure that this information is correct.


 - It is the responsibility of the Certified Collector to determine whether the positive drug screen was due to

   legitimate prescription drug use or if it is due to illegal drug use or prescription drug mis-use.

Oral Fluid Drug Testing

 - You must spit out any gum or tobacco that you have in your mouth so that it does not affect the quality of

   testing.


 - You will then be required to provide a sample of your saliva into an oral fluid collection device.


 - If you are booked in for an express oral fluid test, the tester will wait for the given amount of time specific to

   the collection device and then read the device to determine if drugs are present in your sample.


 - If you are booked in for a lab based oral fluid test, the tester will fill out a chain of custody, and package the

   sample to go to the laboratory. Lab results typically take 2-5 business days.


 - If your lab based drug screen is positive or if your express drug screen is confirmed positive at the lab you will 

   be contacted by one of our Certified Collectors. They will contact you with the information you put down on

   your intake form. Ensure that this information is correct.


 - It is the responsibility of the Certified Collecot to determine whether the positive drug screen was due to

   legitimate prescription drug use or if it is due to illegal drug use or prescription drug mis-use.

Hair Drug Testing

 - If you do not have sufficient head hair (about 1.5" inches) to administer the test, the tester will take a sample

   of your body hair. This hair may be taken from areas such as your armpit or leg.


 - The tester will take a sample of hair, by cutting your hair with scissors as close to the root as possible, typically

   from the crown of the head (Hair will not be pulled out by the root). 90-120 hairs are needed for a successful

   test. The cut hair should not be noticeable after the test is complete.


 - Express testing is not available for hair samples, only lab based testing is available. The tester will fill out a

   chain of custody and package the sample to go to the laboratory. Lab results typically take 5-10 business days.


 - If you fail your lab based drug screen, you will be contacted by one of our Certified Collectors. * They will

   contact you with the information you put down on your intake form. Ensure that this information is correct.


 - It is the responsibility of the Certified Collector to determine whether the positive drug screen was due to

   legitimate prescription drug use or if it is due to illegal drug use or prescription drug mis-use.

Alcohol Testing

 - You must spit out any gum or tobacco that you have in your mouth so that it does not affect the quality of

   testing.


 - The tester will administer one of two types of tests: either a saliva test or a breath alcohol test.


 - If you are scheduled for a breath alcohol test, you will be instructed by the tester to “empty your lungs” into

   the disposable tube attached to the breath alcohol testing unit. A fresh tube is used for every person; the tubes

   are not sterilized and are not re-used. After you have finished breathing into the unit, it will beep, and the

   tester will be able to see a digital reading of the BAC (blood alcohol concentration) level.


 - If you are scheduled for a saliva alcohol test, you will be instructed by the tester to insert a saliva kit into your

   mouth for 60 seconds. Once enough saliva is collected, the tester will be able to read the kit and determine

   the BAC level.


 - If the results of your alcohol test are above the acceptable level (dependent upon your company) you will

   receive a confirmation test 15 minutes after the original test was administered.

 - If the BAC is still above the acceptable level, your result will be considered a fail.
