is one that provides for adulterant detection and one
of the first to provide simultaneous drug and adulterant

test. According to the American Management
Association's annual Survey on Workplace Drug Testing
and Drug Abuse Policies, workplace drug testing has increased

stark contrast to the popular fantasy that drug
users are unemployed losers, approximately 75 percent
of adult illicit drug users -- some 8.5 million
people -- are employed. It is estimated that at
least one employee in 10 has a problem with alcohol
or drugs. No company, large or small, is immune
from this problem.

their tests, is increasing. A quick search of the

where so-called "cleansing" aids are sold for the sole

or human urine that is purported to be "clean."
They are also marketing a product which proclaims to “clear”
any drug residue from the urine sample in order to provide
for a clean test result even though the applicant or employee
is under the influence.
All known common adulterants can be detected such as Stealth,
Urine Luck, Whizzes, Klear, Clear Choice, Instant additive,
Visine, Drano and Bleach.
Additionally, anti-drug testing sites list companies nationwide,

require for employment.
