Hair Follicle Drug Testing:
A standard hair test will detect drugs ingested within the past ninety (90) days, or longer if necessary. Hair follicle drug tests can detect drugs of abuse, highly abused prescription medication, and alcohol. Hair tests can also be conducted to detect substances used in instances of date rape.
Urine Drug Testing:
When used appropriately, urine testing is very effective in detecting drugs of abuse, as well as more obscure substances, such as medications used for sleep and designer/synthetic drugs. It has been used for many years, and is currently the main method of testing in Federal drug testing programs. Paymer Associates conducts both lab-based and instant urine tests, and we have access to thousands of collection sites worldwide. Additionally, we can set up, maintain, and monitor a random urine testing program to suit the needs of any situation.
Technology has changed the face of alcohol testing over the past twenty years. Paymer Associates has embraced this new trend. We are the exclusive Connecticut provider of the SCRAMx continuous alcohol monitoring bracelet, and the Soberlink Remote Breathalyzer. Both devices offer coverage previously unmanageable through alcohol bio-marker testing (urine testing). They both can effectively distinguish between environmental exposure to alcohol and a true drinking event. When appropriate, we also offer urine testing, as well as hair testing, to detect alcohol ingestion.
Drug Sweat Patch:
Paymer Associates can also detect drug use through the use of a patch that is applied to an individual's skin. Parent drugs, as well as drug metabolites, are collected onto the patch from the sweat produced by the wearer. The patch will detect drug use 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for a period of up to 14 days. The adhesive on the patch is designed for one time application, making it completely tamper proof. Once removed, the used patch is sent to a SAMHSA certified laboratory, where it is analyzed. The patch is put on the arm, midriff, or back, making it unnoticeable to others. It is extremely durable, and the person being tested can swim, shower, work out, and participate in everyday activities.
