Drug Testing Q&A

What is drug testing?

Drug testing analyzes a sample of your blood, urine, or hair for the presence of alcohol, prescription drugs, or illicit substances.

If you drive a commercial vehicle, like a semi-truck or a city bus, you’re required by law to undergo regular drug testing. You might also benefit if you’re on probation or being treated for a substance use disorder (SUD). 

Durango Urgent Care provides drug testing for individuals and employers. Each staff member is certified by the Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association (DATIA), ensuring accurate and reliable collections.

What types of substances can drug testing detect?

At Durango Urgent Care, the providers use drug testing to screen for various substances, including:

  • Amphetamines
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Barbiturates
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Alcohol
  • PCP
  • Methadone
  • Heroin

You might also be a candidate for drug testing if you’re struggling with an addiction to prescription opioids.

What are the types of drug testing?

Durango Urgent Care offers several types of drug testing, including:

  • Urine specimen testing
  • Breath alcohol testing
  • Oral fluids testing

  • Pre-employment 
  • Post-accident
  • Return to duty
  • Random
  • Follow-up

After a review of your medical records and a discussion of your goals, your Durango Urgent Care provider makes testing recommendations.

What happens during a drug testing appointment?

At Durango Urgent Care, drug testing appointments typically take 30 minutes or less.

First, your provider reviews your medical records and paperwork provided by your employer or the court. Next, they recommend a specific type of drug testing. Depending on your needs, they might collect a sample of your hair or ask you to urinate in a sterile collection container.

After collecting the sample, your Durango Urgent Care provider sends it to a nearby laboratory. Technicians at the lab analyze your sample for the presence of prescription drugs, alcohol, or other illicit substances.

When Durango Urgent Care receives your test results, your provider calls and explains them. If necessary, they can also fill out paperwork to submit to your employer or lawyer.

When will I get the results of my drug test?

How long it takes to get the results of a drug test depends on various factors, including when the test occurred and the screen you underwent. Durango Urgent Care tries to provide test results within 48 hours and sometimes sooner.
