Drug Testing

Background Checks for Volunteers is proud to partner with Quest and LabCorp to provide its clients with access to a wide range of testing locations across the United States. Our services can support any drug screening need – urine, blood, hair follicle and breath-alcohol tests. Our system offers a fully integrated solution to compliment your background check program.


Employees and volunteers who engage in substance abuse jeopardize the safety of co-workers, other volunteers and organization members. Drug abusers are 3.6 times more likely to be involved in a workplace accident and 5 times more likely to file a workers compensation claim.

Drug Testing Requirements

1. Written notice concerning testing should be given to the applicant or volunteer before he or she is tested.

2. Your organization should have a written substance abuse screening policy stating that the volunteer/applicant should be drug free.



We offer a 5-panel urine drug test which can detect five of the most commonly used street drugs: Marijuana, Cocaine, Amphetamines, Opiates, e.g. Heroin, and PCP.

We also offer a 10-panel urine drug test which includes all the substances in the 5-panel test, plus five prescription drugs: Benzodiazepines, Quaaludes, Methadone, Propoxyphene, and Barbiturates.

Any screenings with positive results will be reviewed by a MRO (medical review officer) and an expert in the substance abuse field. The result of the positive test is delivered approximately 2-3 days after the prospective employee or volunteer takes the drug test. You will receive a notification via email once your results are in. Urinalysis drug testing, which includes collection, initial screen, confirmation GC/MS screen if needed and analysis by a MRO, and more extensive drug testing options (like hair or blood tests) are also available.
