Corporate Drug Testing Programs

July 9, 2010 in Employee Drug Testing Information

The basic drug test used by most corporate drug testing programs is called a Five-Screen (or NIDA-5 or SAMHSA-5) which is testing for five types of drugs:

  1. Cannabinoids (Marijuana, Hashish)
  2. Cocaine (Cocaine, Crack, Benzoylecognine)
  3. Opiates (Heroin, Opium, Codeine, Morphine
  4. Amphetamines (Methamphetamines, Speed)
  5. Phencyclidine (PCP, Angel Dust)

However, many drug testing firms now offer a Ten-Screen which expands to include five additional drugs:

  1. Barbituates (Phenobarbital, Secobarbitol, Pentobarbital, Butalbital, Amobarbital)
  2. Methaqualone (Qualuudes)
  3. Benzodiazepines (Tranquilizers-Diazepam, Valium, Librium, Ativan, Xanax, Clonopin, Serax, Halcion, Rohypnol)
  4. Methadone
  5. Propoxyphene (Darvon compounds)
