Did you know that more than half of Americans abusing prescribed drugs got them from a friend or relative? Unfortunately, this addiction is affecting many people’s work status.

Our team at AFC Urgent Care Ooltewah wants you to always be in the know, which is why we offer drug screenings at our urgent care center seven days a week.

Who Needs a Drug Screening?

Basically, anyone can be subject to a drug screening. In most cases, drug screenings are a part of the application process when a person applies for a job.

However, depending on the company policy, the screening might test for both drug and alcohol use. And the company might require additional tests after the employee has begun working.

What Drug Screens Test For

  • Amphetamines
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Cocaine
  • Ectasy
  • Marijuana
  • Methadone
  • Opiates
  • Oxycodone
  • PCP
  • Percocet
  • Propoxyphene
  • Quaaludes

When Can I Expect Results From Drug Screening?

Thanks to the state-of-the-art lab available right here at our urgent care center, blood tests and urine tests can both be conducted easily. In most cases, results can be received within 24 to 48 hours after testing is performed.

While you can drink water before your drug screening, it is important that you do not drink too much, as it can dilute the test and make it inaccurate.

How to Prepare for Drug Test

  • Bring your identification card.
  • Bring any paperwork your company might have provided.
  • Plan to empty all pockets before testing.
  • Provide your medical history.
