The process of designing, implementing and administering
a proper and comprehensive drug and alcohol testing program can be a time-consuming,
costly and difficult project. In addition, ensuring that the program is
effective and complies with all state and federal laws makes this process
even more complicated. For these reasons and due to the administrative
burden that is required to maintain a comprehensive substance abuse prevention
program, you should consider our services.
Corporate Substance Abuse Programs, Inc., takes a comprehensive
approach to drug and alcohol testing. We provide customized programs for
each of our clients.
To assist you in understanding the complexity of a comprehensive
substance abuse program consider the following current drug and alcohol
testing program requirements:
(1) The creation and publication of a drug and alcohol
(2) Instruction for company management regarding how
to recognize whether a person is under the influence of drugs or alcohol
and what the supervisor's role is in overseeing the drug program
(3) Publication of a reference manual for management
(4) Publication of an informational booklet for employees
(5) Selection of facilities for the collection of urine
and other required samples
(6) Selection of facilities for performing evidentiary
breath testing (EBT)
(7) Selection of a laboratory certified by the Substance
Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to test all
(8) Selection of a medical review officer (MRO) to
interpret the test results
(9) Selection of an Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
to aid employees in need of counseling
(10) Arrangement of proper record keeping and, if required,
the filing of reports with government agencies
(11) Maintenance of records' confidentiality
Additionally, all parties must be informed of the drugs
that are being tested for, the different circumstances under which tests
must be given, and how individuals are selected to be tested.
When all of the above have been accomplished, there will
still be the need for legal advice and support for complying with changes
to laws and handling any test challenges that might potentially arise.

these administrative burdens since we are experienced and have a proven
