About American Drug and Alcohol Diagnostics, LLC
ADAD is a consulting firm that specializes in onsite drug and alcohol testing programs to help employers maintain safe working environments and comply with state and federal laws. ADAD customizes and implement testing policies for federally and non-federally mandated industries ranging from transportation and energy to manufacturing and retail.
As a third-party administrator, American Drug and Alcohol Diagnostics provides complete drug and alcohol program consultation, administration, and back-up record keeping services. ADAD also provides assistance with and administration of the federally mandated DOT Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse. Our clients particularly appreciate our expertise regarding on-the-job accidents, DOT/PUC audits, and unemployment compensation hearings. Our drug and alcohol policy ensures compliance with all federal and state regulations, and includes customization for company-specific provisions. Included with the policy is an optional presentation and question/answer session for employees regarding the policy guidelines. ADAD provides test kits in the event of an accident (for local and over-the-road drivers) or as an option for companies whose employees have varying schedules.
In addition to up-to-date knowledge regarding federal and state regulations, American Drug and Alcohol Diagnostics offers onsite testing services and nearsite services which are planned around your company’s work schedule. Time spent waiting at the hospital or clinic is time lost on the job, and onsite testing eliminates this issue. Our company’s strict onsite test protocol combined with proper supervisor training (which is provided) significantly reduces the possibility of substitutions and adulterations of specimens, which is difficult to avoid with offsite collection facilities.
Additionally, ADAD collectors are specifically trained in DOT/FMCSA regulation knowledge. This ensures any questions an employer/employee have are answered immediately, and all regulatory requirements and company policies are followed precisely. This is crucial for “eventful” collections.
Most of our CDL tests (which must be sent to the lab per regulation) are reported back to the employer by the end of the next business day. This is important since CDL drivers cannot legally drive (as a new hire) until the drug and alcohol results are documented by the employer, so the faster the test results arrive, the faster the employers can schedule the drivers. Of course, the non-negative tests require more time for additional testing.
ADAD provides an option to test for prescription drug abuse of common narcotics in addition to illegal drug use for non-federal tests. Premises, sweat patch and other testing options are available as applicable by state and local law.
