DOT Drug Test in Newark

The Department of Transportation (DOT) places great importance on public safety. That's why safety-sensitive transportation industry employees are required to submit to DOT drug and alcohol tests. Truck drivers, pipeline workers, train operators and airplane mechanics directly impact public safety so it's imperative that these workers be drug and alcohol free.

If you are asked to take a DOT drug test in Newark, Astrahealth Centers is a convenient place to have your lab tests completed. The process is quite simple. All you are required to do is provide a urine sample for testing. Then, we send the sample through lab testing to see if it contains traces of marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, opiates or phencyclidine.

A medical review officer sits down and reviews the results with you. If the test comes back positive, you have 72 hours to request a do over. Once verified, the results are sent to your employer.

Pre-employment screening is the most common reason for DOT drug and alcohol tests. Other situations include reasonable suspicion, follow-up, return-to-duty, post-accident and random testing.

It's important that you take public safety, in and around Newark, as seriously as the DOT does. Remember, as a transportation industry employee, you are not permitted to:

  • Have or use illicit drugs or alcohol while working.
  • Report for duty while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Drink for several hours prior to reporting for duty.
  • Take non-prescribed prescription medications
  • Refuse to submit to a DOT drug test.
