Customized, Cost-effective Drug Testing Services
No employer is immune from the risks associated with drug and alcohol abuse. Substance abuse contributes to on-the-job accidents, lower productivity, greater absenteeism, higher healthcare costs, and heightened threats to the health and safety of employees. The latest statistics show that roughly 8% of those in the workforce are drug users who cost their employers about twice as much in medical and worker compensation claims as their drug-free co-workers. Reduce these risks with Apollo’s drug and alcohol testing services.
Apollo partners with the country's leading drug testing laboratory networks. Our contracted laboratories are certified by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), College of American Pathologists (CAP), and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). To further ensure accuracy, all non-negative results are confirmed using Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) technology and are reviewed by an accredited Medical Review Officer (MRO).
AT YOUR SITE 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year - or at Our Clinical Location. On-site collections preferred by many employers due to the cost effectiveness of paying one collector to come to the job site.
