DOT Drug & Alcohol Testing in Sugar Land
We help you comply with the regulations
If you own or manage a DOT-regulated business, it’s important that you abide by all federal rules and regulations. However, it can be difficult to navigate the various requirements for drug and alcohol testing. ARCpoint Labs of Sugar Land can help your organization remain in compliance with all federal regulations.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) tests are conducted to ensure that commercial drivers, such as bus and truck drivers, are not impaired or under the influence of drugs or alcohol while driving. DOT testing is also used to make sure that these drivers are in compliance with mandated substance abuse regulations and that their vehicles are in good working order.
Alcohol testing is also conducted to ensure that employees who are operating heavy machinery or other vehicles are not under the influence of alcohol. This type of testing is important because it helps ensure that employees are not putting themselves or other people in danger.
The Part 40 rule requires all safety-sensitive employers to conduct proper drug and alcohol testing, including pre-employment, randomized, for-cause, and post-accident testing. ARCpoint Lab collectors are all trained according to DOT regulations and protocols to ensure you and your employees receive reliable and accurate results that will keep you in compliance.

What Substances Do the DOT Test For?

- Opiates: (including hydromorphone, oxymorphone, codeine, oxycodone, heroin, and hydrocodone) for up to three days
- Marijuana metabolites: Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for up to one or more weeks
- Phencyclidine (PCP): for up to three days
- Cocaine metabolites: for up to three days
- Amphetamines: (methamphetamine and 3, 4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA)) for up to three days
