Q: Do I need an appointment for my drug test?
A: No. You do not need an appointment. You may walk-in anytime between 9am and 5pm, M-F only. Walk-ins are seen after appointments. Individuals with appointments will be seen before walk-ins. We can not guarantee if you will be seen or how long you will wait if you arrive without an appointment. The clinic staff is not allowed to generate or initiate appointments. Appointments for employer services are ONLY made online.
Q: My job told me that I can walk-in for a drug test. Why was I told to wait when I arrived?
A: Walk-ins work the same as arriving at the restaurant without a reservation. You will be given a wait time once you arrive and checkin at the facility. We take a detailed description of your car and wave you in from the door once there is space available. We do not give estimated wait times over the phone as it may be drastically different than when you actually arrive at the facility.
Q: What should I bring with me to the drug test appointment?
A: Bring your drivers license or government-issued photo ID and an authorization for your test(s).
Q: I arrived at the clinic and the door was locked. Are you open for business?
A: The door is occasionally locked during business hours for safety reasons or we are at clinic capacity. If you arrive and the door is locked during the hours of 9am and 5pm, M-F, please return to your car and call 240-856-1393 for current wait time. Do not loiter at clinic entrance or on sidewalk. The patients inside the clinic need to exit. The patients with appointments need to enter the clinic. Be courteous.
Q: My employer told me that I must print the authorization and bring it to the clinic in order to be seen. I don't have a printer. What should I do?
A: We accept electronic versions of your authorization for any and all services. If you have the email with the authorization, show us when you arrive, do not print it as it does not add any value to your visit. Your government-issued photo ID is matched with your name in our database to get you registered and implement services.

A: There is no preparation for a drug test other than the ability to provide an unadulterated sample upon arrival.
Q: My employer ordered a hair drug test. Should I be worried about hiding the patch that will be cut during the sample collection?
A: No. The collector will use great care to conceal the area where the sample was taken. Most donors tell us that their barbers can’t tell they had hair samples taken unless they’re told.
Q: What if I don’t have hair on my head or my hair is braided when I come in for a hair drug test?
A: The collectors are trained to procure samples from alternative sites for any all scenarios. We will be happy to discuss your options and perform your test upon arrival.

You will need to reach out to your employer, sponsor, or the laboratory processing your specimen. We will be happy to assist you with proper contact information.
Q: What type of test am I getting when I arrive?

Q: I was advised to present for a "federal" drug test. Is there anything special I should do to prepare? Does the clinic take different measures for "federal" drug tests?
A: DOT or regulated drug testing ("federal drug testing") is governed by different rules and procedures than NON-DOT drug collections. We generally perform federal drug tests for employees and contractors of airlines, railroads, truck drivers, pipeline workers, government employees, coast guard, and others. The main difference (federal vs non-federal) for the consumer is whether your pee goes into one cup versus two for your sample.
