A Message From The CEO

Welcome to Psychemedics. We hope you visit our site because, like us, you recognize that substance abuse threatens workplaces, schools, and homes like never before. Together we can minimize the impacts it has on all our lives.

Our scientists pioneered the science of hair testing for drugs in 1979 and brought it to the market in 1986. In fact, we are proud to say…

“We invented the science that re-invented the drug testing industry.”

Since 1986, Psychemedics has identified more drug users for more companies than any other hair testing lab in the world. Our patented technology finds 6-10 times more users than urine testing and 2-3 times more than other hair labs. We have enjoyed a thirty-year legacy of innovation like no other company in the industry and continue that legacy to this day. I hope you will take the time to explore our website or look through the industry’s most complete family (benzodiazepines, cannabis, etc.) of FDA 510(k)-cleared drug screens, and you will see why we remain the world leader.

Once again, welcome to Psychemedics. We are glad you visited and hope you will contact us with any questions you might have.
