The test takes place

Candidates take the pass & photo ID with them to the testing center to complete the test.

Receive the results

Results are typically posted within a few hours, but may take up to two days depending on positive or negative results and MRO review.

Positive results

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 test is delivered in approximately 2-3 days from the time the prospective caregiver goes for drug testing. You should receive a notification via email once your results are in. Urinalysis drug testing includes collection, initial screen, confirmation GC/MS screen if needed, and analysis by a MRO.
