Why are at-home drug tests used and what drug test is right for you?

Why are at-home drug tests used and what drug test is right for you?

Many families are struggling with helping loved ones deal with addiction.  At-home drug testing can be an asset to help during the recovery process.

At-home drug tests can be used as a preventative measure or an investigative tool. Some people believe that if a person knows that s/he will be tested on a regular basis s/he will be less likely to abuse drug substances.  Urine-based drug tests can be used as an investigation tool for people in your home whom you believe may be using legal and/or illicit drugs either in or outside a work place environment.

Businesses, large and small, might test new employees or have an ongoing testing routines to screen employees for illegal and prescription drugs that are commonly abused.  These tests can be important for job tasks that include operating large pieces of machinery or where driving is involved.

Many companies test during the interview process, so if you are concerned a medication or diet may produce a positive result, it may be beneficial to test yourself before applying for a new job.  If you have been using CBD and are concerned about passing a drug test when you return to work, you may want to consider one of ALFA’s THC urine cassettes or Simple Cup THC urine tests.

Some of the drugs that are detected in these tests include:

  • Opioids
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Amphetamines
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Barbiturates
  • MDMA (Ecstasy)
  • PCP
  • Marijuana
  • Tricyclic antidepressants

At ALFA we have a variety of urine drug tests.  Our Driven Flow® Simple Cup tests are available for just THC alone or multi-drug combinations of 7-drugs and 12-drugs. We also offer cassette versions that test for 5, 7, 10 or 12 drug combinations at one time as well as individual urine test cassettes for single drug testing. 

If you are a company wanting to screen employees or if you would like to do regular at-home screening, we offer bulk purchases for certain drug tests.

Our tests are easy-to-use, provide fast and accurate results, and are always made in the USA.
