Hair Follicle Drug Testing

A hair follicle drug test screens for illicit drug use and the misuse of prescription medication. During the test, a small amount of hair is removed using scissors above the scalp and then analyzed for signs of drug use. This procedure is quick, painless and requires only a small amount of hair.

Hair follicle testing can be used for the following drugs:

  • Amphetamine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Ecstasy
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • PCP
  • Opioids

Urine drug testing is effective at detecting if employees have used drugs within the past few days, but a hair follicle test can detect drug use in the past 90 days. Hair follicle testing can be used to screen for a single type of drug or a full panel of drugs.

Hair follicle testing is a great option for employers to see if an employee has used drugs in the past 3 months and/or is using drugs chronically. Knowing if your employees are using drugs can help keep your business safe. Coe Management Group can provide secure hair follicle testing for your company and will provide fast, accurate results.
