We Are Creating A Drug Free Team

If you have used drugs in the last 90 days we will know.


We Only Hire Drug-Free Candidates

A drug test using hair is required of every applicant.

We are serious about hiring people who are drug-free. So we have teamed with Psychemedics, the company that has identified more drug users for more companies than any other hair testing laboratory in the world.  Why?

With a drug test using urine, there is safety in numbers. The detection rate is low, and the drugs can only be detected for a few days after use. You might literally get lost in the crowd of people tested. Not with Psychemedics. A Psychemedics drug test detects drugs used months ago rather than a few days back, and their technology misses virtually nothing.

A Positive Test Result Means You Will Not Be Hired.


Things You Should Know Before You Are Tested

  • You Can’t Cheat The Test. While cheating a urine test may only mean staying away from drugs for a few days, that doesn’t work with a Psychemedics hair test. An applicant would have to be drug free for at least 90 days to avoid triggering a positive test result.


  • Drugs Can’t Hide. A standard Psychemedics drug test identifies users of Cocaine, Opioids of all types, Phencyclidine (PCP), Amphetamines and Marijuana. Other drugs that can be identified include Benzodiazepines, Adderall, Fentanyl, Synthetic Cannabinoids and others.


  • Extreme Shaving Just Won’t Work.  With Psychemedics, we can test either head or body hair. Shaving makes hair disappear, but it does grow back and we will ask that applicant to come back when it does.


  • Chemical Treatments Will Not Change A Result.  On urine tests a common evasion tactic is to buy chemicals online that will mask drugs in the urine. Although a drug user may be tempted to use hair dyes, bleaches, or other chemicals to cheat the test it is a fruitless exercise. The results of a Psychemedics hair test will not be impacted; only the physical appearance of the would-be cheater.


  • If The Test Is Positive, You Did The Drug. Claiming your hair was contaminated by someone else’s drug is not a valid excuse. The results of Psychemedics tests have been upheld in 30 years of court cases and validated by independent laboratories including the FBI. A positive result is proof enough that you used a drug. No questions asked.

How Does A Hair Test Work?

When you take drugs, they are metabolized by the organs in your body and then excreted, usually in urine and usually within just a few days. That is why a drug test using urine is easy to cheat. By the time a test is administered—especially if a user prepares for it—most of the drugs have been processed by the body and eliminated as the body flushes itself out. Urine is ineffective at detecting usage except in the very recent past.

A Psychemedics hair test is different.

As drugs are processed by the body small amounts pass from the blood into a hair follicle. As the hair grows from the follicle those trace amounts are carried inside the hair shaft where the Psychemedics science can detect the. Rather than being excreted, that evidence of drug use is part of the body. Since it is being carried by the hair as it grows, it establishes a chronological record of drug use. It takes about 30 days for hair to grow one-half inch. A sample of hair just 1.5 inches long and as big around as a pencil lead gives us a 90-day picture of drug usage. And reveals two important things a habitual drug user would rather we not know.

  • Which drugs were ingested in which amounts
  • How often they were ingested over a period of time

Those two things let us screen out applicants that bring the highest risk—-habitual drug users.

Three Things To Consider Before Your Test


We truly DON'T Want To Catch You.

We need to hire lots of great people every year. And we need our team mates to be at their best every day. So for us a negative result on a drug test is a great result.  We just won’t let drugs get close to our business because they are bad for business. Believe us—a negative result on your drug test is a winning result both for you and for us.


Please, show up drug-free.


Drugs are killing more people than ever.

All the statistics point to one thing. Deaths by drug overdose are at staggering levels. In fact, 2017 was the worst year on record for drug deaths with over 70,000 in one year compared to 58,000 killed in a decade of war in Vietnam. We want our workplace stay drug-free, but also want our businesses to operate in drug-free communities.


Please, if you use…stop.


Since You Can't Cheat...Quit.

We know you would like to join our team or you would not be reading this page. You won’t cheat the drug test that we run on applicants so the best strategy is to be drug free. Remember—tactics that may work with other drug tests just won’t work here. Honestly—the only way you will pass our drug test is to be drug free. Period.


Nothing else works.
