Drug Testing Index reflects a continuation of the national trend toward increased utilization of narcotics and pain medications.
USA Mobile Drug Testing reports that Quest studies “suggest that substance abuse – which includes drugs and alcohol – costs the United States an estimated $276 billion a year, with much of the cost resulting from lost work productivity and increased healthcare spending. The human cost of substance abuse is much higher, especially when coupled with safety-sensitive jobs that present a risk to public safety. Drug testing can be a valuable tool for some employers to create professional, safe workplaces, especially when coupled with education, prevention, and referral and treatment programs.”
