RESULTS Drug and Alcohol Testing Program

​​RESULTS uses a Beckman Coulter AU480 Chemistry Analyzer secured through Siemens to perform urine drug and alcohol testing. Siemens’ Syva EMIT® immunoassays are the most widely used and scientifically documented screening tests for drugs of abuse. Syva has been a leading developer and manufacturer of drugs-of-abuse tests for more than 40 years. No other drugs-of-abuse screening tests have a longer or more reliable record. EMIT® test results have been upheld in numerous court decisions and at the highest level of the American judicial system: the United States Supreme Court. For further information regarding Siemens, please visit www.siemens.com.

RESULTS utilizes drug cut-off levels in compliance with the Michigan Association of Drug Court Professionals (MADCP) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).  All urine samples are collected under direct observation by a Sheriff’s Deputy (gender specific), which provides for increased sample integrity. In addition, all urine samples are screened for dilution, validity and adulteration.  

Urine Drug Tests
Drug tests are conducted by collecting urine samples and analyzing the sample using an immunoassay testing technique. Urine drug samples are analyzed following either a 2-Panel Presumptive Screen (tests for the presence of Cocaine and Marijuana) or a 5-Panel Presumptive Screen (tests for the presence of Cocaine, Marijuana, Amphetamines, Benzodiazepines and Opiates).

Urine Alcohol Tests
Alcohol tests are conducted by collecting urine samples and analyzing the samples using an immunoassay testing technique. This technique analyzes the sample for the presence of Ethyl Glucuronide (ETG), an alcohol metabolite.  Ethyl glucuronide has been shown to be a sensitive and specific marker for ethanol consumption and is detectable in urine for up to 80 hours after alcohol has been ingested.

Alcohol Testing - Preliminary Breath Tests
PBTs are conducted on-site for alcohol testing.  Clients that are to submit to random alcohol testing may test at one of our sites.  If they are unable to report to one of the sites, their PBT Log must be hand-delivered or faxed to one of the sites by 6 a.m. the following business day.

Test Results
Courts and probation staff receive weekly compliance reports as well as notification of any positive test results the next business day.
