Hair Drug Testing

August 11th, 2010 by admin

Employers who use drug/alcohol test screenings on their employees are now more commonly turning to hair drug testing  and using the hair test rather than the urine, blood or saliva test.  Why?  Because there is a longer time frame for detection and the tests are very accurate. 


Illicit drugs such as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, prescription drugs, and many others can be detected in hair for several months and even years in people with longer hair.  Hair usually grows 1cm per month so a 3cm sample will provide a 3 month history.  Collecting the hair sample is painless and non-invasive,  unlike a blood test.


The courts are also requesting this method more frequently as test results are being upheld in court.  Parents who are concerned about their child’s possible drug use will find that hair drug testing at home is easy and very convenient.  Hair drug test kits (as well as drug and alcohol home tests) can be ordered online and done in the privacy of your own home. 


One of the disadvantages of hair drug testing is that the results from do take longer than the other methods – usually one week and up to ten days – but the accuracy and depth of information resulting is much greater and therefore a better indicator of drug or alcohol use over the longer term.

    The longer wait for the results of the hair drug test is compensated by the high accuracy of it so I think that’s a fair trade so to speak. Great post, I have 3 teenage boys and although I have raised them well, there are a lot of bad influences outside of home so I could not really be sure. Using a home hair drug testing kit would be very advantageous.

    Thank you for this great article. I include drug testing as a requisite for pre-employment and also go for random drug tests through out the year. I just can’t tolerate drug abuse in my employees because it ruins their productivity. Hair drug testing sounds like a better option than what we use now, is it more expensive?
