What happens if you fail a drug test?

If you fail an employer-required drug screening, you may be disqualified from getting the job, or lose your job. However, employment-related drug screenings have no legal standing, and therefore, positive results will not be sent to the authorities. Test results are sent only to the company who paid for the screening.

What drugs are included in a drug test?

Urine drug screenings performed at Duke City Urgent Care are used by employers to screen for:
  • Amphetamines
  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamines
  • Opiates
  • Nicotine
  • Alcohol

Will prescription drugs show up on a drug test?

Because prescription drug abuse has become a widespread problem, companies are testing for additional components outside the traditional list of illegal drugs to look for commonly abused prescription drugs.

If you are taking a prescribed medication at the proper dosage and frequency, your results could show a “false positive.” In addition, prescription strength cold medicine and pain relievers can result in a false positive urine drug test. Before undergoing a drug screening, make sure you are completely honest and upfront with your employer or prospective employer about any prescription medications you are taking, including over-the-counter medicines and supplements.
