Did you know that DISA provides long-term drug testing methodologies?
Long-term drug testing, such as hair testing, is regarded by many as the best indicator of repeat drug use since it can detect repeat drug use up to a 90-day window. Because hair testing has a wider “detection window,” it eliminates the opportunity for people to abstain for several days prior to being tested to avoid a positive test.
By implementing a long-term methodology like hair, alongside a short-term methodology (e.g., Urine or Oral Fluid), employers have historically identified 2-3 times the number of drug abusers*. This combination of methodologies eliminates testing gaps while ensuring employers make the most informed decisions and build a culture of safety at their workplace.
