A Department of Human services worker has a client who is participating in the Span Random management program and testing two times a month. The worker suspects that the client is abusing some kind of drug but is not sure what substance and how often, so after getting three months of negative screen results the DHS worker calls Span and asked them if there was anything else that might help to detect any usage?
Solution: The Span representative recommends that the DHS worker have her client complete a Hair test which would give the worker a larger window for detection–up to 90. The worker orders the hair test to be completed and in seven days the worker receives the hair test results–positive for Cocaine, confirming the worker’s suspicions. Having the evidence she needs, the worker now can make her case in court.
