DOT Drug Test near Jersey City

As a truck driver, air traffic controller, vehicle mechanic or other type of safety-sensitive employee, you are required by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to have DOT drug and alcohol testing performed before you are hired. Public safety is the primary reason this rule has been in effect since 1991.

As a transportation industry employee, you are not allowed to:

  • Have or use drugs or alcohol while on the job.
  • Report for duty under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Drink for several hours prior to reporting for service.
  • Take medications that have not been prescribed by your doctor.
  • Refuse to submit to DOT drug and alcohol testing.

DOT drug tests analyze urine samples to detect marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, opiates or phencyclidine in your body. Alcohol tests involve breathing into a breathalyzer or having your saliva tested. Blood specimens are only taken as part of post-accident testing.

Astrahealth Centers makes the process quite simple with its testing facilities near Jersey City. After receiving notification that you must submit to a DOT drug test in Jersey City, stop by a nearby Astrahealth Centers for urine collection. A medical review officer analyzes the lab tests and meets with you to share the results. You have 72 hours following this meeting to request a second sample be tested. The verified results are sent to your employer and the necessary action is taken. Usually a breathalyzer test is only administered if your employer suspects you are under the influence of alcohol.
