Having a drug-free workplace program in place is a workplace’s best line of defense against alcohol and drug problems. A drug-free workplace policy forms the foundation for a drug-free workplace program; however, it is not the same as a drug-free workplace program. Rather, it is one of five components. In addition to a policy, a comprehensive drug-free workplace program includes supervisor training, employee education, employee assistance and drug testing.
Consortium/Third-Party Administrators (C/TPAs) manage all, or part, of an employer’s DOT and Non DOT drug and alcohol testing program, sometimes including maintaining required testing records. They perform tasks as agreed to by the employer to assist in implementing the drug and alcohol testing program and to help keep the employer compliant with the DOT and other Federal and State Drug and Alcohol Testing rules and regulations.
Appointments preferred, walk-ins welcome.
Drug Testing Centers of America’s on-site testing services reduce the risk of employee tampering and adulteration of test samples, lowers the risk for offsite employee injury due to travel, and expedites the return of the employee to the workforce thereby reducing the loss of work- time and productivity.
If your company has multiple shifts, it is more convenient to have DTCA come to your place of business to conduct drug testing. Most clinics are not open outside of normal business hours; therefore, our mobile service was designed to accommodate companies that function around the clock.
If one of your staff is involved in an accident on the job or on the road, or if you suspect the use of drugs or alcohol at the workplace, it is critical that you get a qualified technician out to the scene quickly. Our mobile staff can be deployed 24/7/365 for DOT or non-DOT drug and alcohol testing.
Additional fees will apply for immediate, emergency service deployment. Call 888-838-3787 for more information.
All testing is conducted following standardized procedures established by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

Alcohol abuse contributes to four major issues in the work-place:
By implementing a program to conduct alcohol testing employers can dramatically assist in reducing the negative impact of alcoholism in the workplace.
The Department of Transportation requires every CDL driver to receive periodic physical examinations conducted by an approved DOT medical examiner. The DOT medical exam looks for certain pre-existing medical conditions that might impair a driver’s ability to safely operate a commercial motor vehicle. A medical examiner’s certificate, which is commonly known as a DOT medical card, provides proof the driver has met the medical requirements to hold a CDL.
An effective hearing conservation program can prevent hearing loss and improve employee morale, thereby increasing the quality of production and reducing the incidence of health-related issues.
Qualitative fit testing can be used to fit test both half-mask and full-face respirators and is conducted by trained technicians.
Spirometry can assist employers in the evaluation of workers demonstrating specific patterns of respiratory impairment and can help to assess the effectiveness of measures implemented to protect individual workers. In addition, results from defined groups of workers can be evaluated in relation to potential workplace hazards. Protecting the health of individual workers is a primary objective of various workplace programs such as this.
We offer low cost blood tests so that you don’t have to pay the outrageous fees that hospitals routinely charge.
