Drug and Alcohol Testing
Did you know that in Alberta alone, lost work hours costs business and industry nearly three billion dollars a year? In some places, nearly 40-percent of all industrial injuries and fatalities are linked to substance abuse or alcoholism, and each year, hundreds of Canadians die from accidental prescription drug overdoses.
The team at Medi-Drugs Pharmacy in Edmonton now includes certified staff for rapid urine, oral fluid, and oral alcohol testing. We offer personal testing and employer non-DOT workplace testing for Edmonton and the surrounding areas including:
There are no mandatory legal requirements for alcohol and drug testing in Canada. However, employers know that implementing an alcohol and drug program will decrease injuries, illness, and absenteeism.
Only trained technicians perform our collections and testing. They know how to secure the site, maintain confidentiality, and prevent sample tampering.
We offer point of collection (POCT) 12 panel urine that will give you immediate results and cover the following drugs:
The Alcohol Saliva Screening Test is for workers hired for commercial transport and includes DOT testing.
Orawell Oral Fluid THC Test
With the legalization of recreational marijuana, we now provide rapid one step THC tests. These tests are intended to check if an individual has RECENTLY used THC. It provides accurate testing to the 20ng/ml limit and checks the individual’s saliva which will show use up to 14 hours. This test can be used to detect recent THC use and can be used as an additional confirmation if a positive 12 panel urine test was performed to see if the individual was recently using.
We understand that testing a family member for drug or alcohol use is a delicate matter. We offer the same confidentiality and professionalism using the same tests mentioned above.
Contact us today to obtain testing for your place of work. Please note that our drug and alcohol testing is only available at our 82 Ave. location.
