Drug Abuse & Misuse:  Reason For Testing

 "..Among Americans aged 12 or older, the use of illicit drugs has increased over the last decade from 8.3% of the population using illicit drugs in the past month in 2002 to 10.2% (27 million people) in 2014". SAMSHA

In reading this SAMSHA documennt referenced below, it becomes equally alarming to see the rising trend in the use of legal drugs such as tobacco and alcohol and the misuse of prescription drugs.  Approximately two thirds of people age 12 and older reportedly drank alcohol and used tobacco products.

"The misuse of prescription drugs is second only to marijuana as the nation’s most common drug problem after alcohol and tobacco, leading to troubling increases in opioid overdoses in the past decade".  SAMSHA

Why Should We Drug Test?

People use drugs for a variety of reasons.  Whether the drug is legal and the person is under the care of a health professional, or illicit, drug use misuse and abuse can have serious health and socioeconomic consequences impacting every aspect of an individual's life. 

U.S. federal (mandated/regulated) and workplace (non-regulated) drug testing took off in the 1980s when the adverse impact of illicit drug use became more widely recognized a decade earlier in the 1970s.

A Drug Testing Program reduces the illicit and inappropriate use of drugs in both the workforce and in our communities. More importantly, in mandated drug testing (Truck drivers, mariners, pilots, transit and rail workers etc..) it educates the workforce, removes violators of DOT's  Drug Testing rules from safety sensitive jobs and provides a Return to Duty Procedure.

Furthermore, regardless of the person's occupation, it helps to identify those who may be in need of treatment and rehabilitation services.

Please read the following excerpt below from SAMSHA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration- an operating division within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) who's charged with reducing the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities.
