Millions of urine drug tests are administered every year. Urine drug testing is the most common screening method and detects usage of illegal substances typically up to a week with the exception of marijuana which can leave detectable traces for up to a month, particularly in the case of heavy users. Urine drug testing is the only testing method approved for federally-mandated testing. Businesses rely on urine testing for its cost-effectiveness and capacity to screen for a wide variety of drugs.
Results of a negative urine test are generally made available within a 24 – 48 hour time period. Positive test results can take up to three business days and sometimes longer.
CJ Cooper & Associates follow DOT mandated protocols for collection procedures, collection facility environment and collector certification.

Implementing your own drug and alcohol testing program can be a challenge. No matter the size of a company, employer’s face compliance issues that include state laws, federal laws, OSHA and other agency regulations that must be met – and these rules change over time.
To make sure your drug program is compliant with state and federal regulations, it involves a lot of research, planning and administrative work – all of which can be costly and time consuming.
As Joe Reilly, past Chairman and board member of the Drug & Alcohol Testing Industry Association (DATIA) said in an article, “drug and alcohol testing is serious business; it is not like buying office supplies where you get the lowest price for 100 staplers. You need a drug testing program with many moving parts and you need service, compliance, accuracy and someone who will answer the phone.”
Remember: You don’t hire a plumber to do your electrical work, so why hire an urgent care clinic to do your drug testing?
