Drug Testing to Detect Illicit Drug Misuse

Once a drug is ingested, it can be detected in urine almost immediately and for several days thereafter. Drugs can be detected in oral fluid shortly after being consumed and for up to 48 hours.

Hair drug testing gives a detailed history of drug use from 2 weeks after ingestion, up to approximately a 12-month period. Segmentation of the hair into monthly sections is recommended to provide a detailed historical record of drug abuse/abstinence.

We can now offer drug testing results in 3 working days, as standard.

The benefits of hair drug testing for court matters

Hair drug testing can determine whether drugs have been abused over a prolonged period of time.

An average person’s head hair grows at a rate of approximately 1 cm per month. Following consumption of a drug and its passage into the bloodstream, a proportion of the drug’s metabolites will enter the hair follicle.

The head hair sample is collected and cut according to the specific requirements. An ‘overview’ drugs of abuse test, for example to cover a period of 3 months, may show positive for the whole 3-month period even if your client has abused drugs occasionally. This can give the impression that the sample donor had been abusing drugs for the whole period analysed.

To gain a clearer picture of how long the client has been using a drug, we recommend that the hair is segmented, and each segment analysed separately for the presence of drugs. This allows us to analyse the hair sample on a month-by-month basis to indicate over which months the sample donor was taking the drug, rather than providing a general overview of the entire period.
