Drug Test FAQs
How much does a drug test cost in Maine?
Most drug tests cost between $25 and $100. When conducted at a doctors office in Maine you can expect to also add on an office visit charge or co-pay. At-home drug tests are also available and can cost less than $10, but are not as reliable. It really depends on what type of test you need. Check with your employer to see what their requirements are. They may even have a preferred lab or draw station they send you to.
Where can I get a drug test in Maine?
Drug tests are generally available throughout Maine at medical testing labs, urgent care centers, retail clinics, primary care doctor offices, and many local pharmacies. While walk-in appointments are typically available, booking a visit online will reduce your wait time and ensure you have your drug test results sooner. If your employer is requiring a drug test, consult with them first as they may have a designated place for you to get your drug test.

Where can I get a drug test after hours in Maine?
Outside routine work hours, most testing labs and primary care offices in Maine are closed, however, most of the area’s urgent care and retail clinics are open later than typical business hours and on weekends. Book an after-hours visit to get prompt, no-hassle care and get your drug test results faster.

Who should get a drug test?
Many employers require pre-employment drug testing prior to being hired. Others may require periodic or random drug testing during your term of employment. Additionally, primary care doctors may order a drug test if they suspect you have a problem with drugs or alcohol, while emergency room doctors may request a drug test if you're confused or your behavior seems strange or dangerous while in the ER.
How long do drug tests take?
For most drug tests, you can be in and out of the testing center within 30 min. For results, however, it depends on what type of test you are getting done. Urine tests and blood tests could take 1-5 business days for results, while hair testing could take 4-10 business days. At-home drug testing, as well as some in-clinic tests may offer more rapid initial results, but the final conclusive results will take longer.
Is drug testing covered by my insurance?
If the drug test is a pre-employment requirement or required by your employer, your employer will cover the cost of the test and will usually send you to a specific lab or draw station to facilitate the test. Beyond that, drug tests are typically out of pocket, and therefore not covered by insurance. It is possible, depending on your plan, that you could submit the receipt to your insurance requesting reimbursement.
Are home drug test kits accurate?
No at-home drug test is 100% accurate. Many factors could alter the results of an at-home test resulting in a false positive or false negative result regardless of the person's actual drug abuse.
For instance, it is possible to test for the wrong drugs. Timing of the collection could be off and the drugs had not yet shown up in the urine at the time the sample was collected. It is also possible that the chemicals in the at-home test went bad if they were stored incorrectly or they passed their expiration date.
About Drug Tests
Drug tests in Maine detect illegal or prescription drugs in urine, blood, hair, perspiration, or saliva. Urine testing is by far the most prevalent type of drug screening, but blood and hair tests are also utilised for specialized purposes. Home test kits frequently only test for one or two narcotics at home, such as marijuana, methamphetamine, and opiates like heroin and cocaine. Lab-based drug tests generally are more comprehensive and screen for a spectrum of drugs and alcohol simultaneously.
Drug screening is used for a variety of objectives, including determining whether or not an individual has taken drugs or alcohol. Employers most typically use them before to making employment decisions or as an ongoing condition of employment. In addition, athletic organizations frequently conduct drug tests for performance-enhancing drugs and other prohibited substances. Drug testing is used by law enforcement and courts in both criminal and civil matters. Finally, if you've been prescribed an opioid by your doctor, he or she may request a drug test to confirm you're getting the right dose of your medicine.
The process of a drug test is really simple and it requires no preparation and involves no risk. For a urine test, which is the most common, the test will basically consist of providing a urine sample in a lab or medical office. The steps are as follows:
- Wash your hands thoroughly, and clean your genital area with a cleansing pad provided by the facility.
- Begin urinating into the toilet, then move the collection cup under your urine stream to collect at least two ounces of urine in the container. There should be markings on the cup to assist with measurement.
- When complete, properly seal the cup using the provided instruction, flus the toilet, wash your hands again, and return the specimen to the technician or healthcare provider as instructed.
A technician may be present while you collect your sample, usually on the orders of law enforcement or the court. To ensure that your test result is valid and that you do not have to redo the process, make sure you complete all of the offered instructions.
