How can student drug testing support your high school, college or university?
Drug and alcohol testing involves checking students for substances and intoxication.
The testing can be conducted based on specific incidents, suspicions, or as part of a broader preventive program.
Additionally, for students preparing for work placements or valuable work experience, drug testing can be a crucial component to ensure a safe and responsible environment. In such cases, it is mandatory for a parent or guardian to be present during the testing process, ensuring transparency and fairness.
Racoo Screening’s test for drugs can be conducted using various methods, such as urine, saliva, or hair samples. Our drug tests can detect a range of substances, from recreational drugs to prescription medications taken without a valid prescription.
