Our Services


DOT Program Management

DISA offers a wide array of tools to address the unique needs of clients with employees regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT). DISA offers Policy Development, Medical Review Officer, and Random Selection to ensure all requirements of DOT are met.

Internet Reporting

Confidentiality regarding employee drug and/or alcohol test results is the employers’ responsibility. DISA provides instant secure results retrievable from anywhere in the world.

On-Site and Contract Collections

DISA teams have provided collection services for a varied client base since 1982. This includes specimen collection, alcohol testing, and baggage searches.

Background Checks

DISA has partnered with a background screening company whose values mimic our own. We can provide accurate and timely information so you can avoid heedless hiring decisions.

Collection Site DOT Compliance Auditing

If you are an employer operating a DOT regulated drug and alcohol program, you are ultimately responsible for ensuring that all aspects of your testing program comply with DOT regulations. Have you fallen victim to a collection site that is unwilling or unable to follow the regulations?

International Drug Screening

DISA Global Services, through strategic partnerships with the world’s leading collection and laboratory providers, including the Alere group of companies, is able to provide a true one source for all international drug screening requirements.

K2 - Spice - Synthetic Marijuana Screening

DISA now offers the most economical, yet most improved screening tool for the detection of over 30 different synthetic cannabinoid compounds. Our internal lab can offer a screening result with a turn-around of 24 hours or less.

Frequently Asked Questions


How long does it take to get a negative drug test result?

Approximately 24 to 48 hours.

What does a dilute result mean?

A dilute specimen is a urine specimen that has a greater concentration of water than that of a normal urine specimen. Dilute specimens are generally caused by oral hydration of fluids and are usually more clear in appearance that normal urine. It is possible that a specimen could be dilute due to inadvertent over-hydration, several medications taken by the donor or existing medical conditions. However, it is also possible that the donor has intentionally over-hydrated, or water-loaded, to avoid the detection of presence of drugs in the specimen.

What is the difference between initial screening and confirmation testing at the lab?

The initial screening process at the lab separates the negative from non negative results. GCMS testing is an extremely accurate test that is completed on non negative results which provides quantitative results for the presence of a specific drug or drug metabolite.

Why are some people randomly tested more than once?

"Is the boss singling me out? I just did a random last month? Joe, never gets tested? I don’t think this thing is random at all!"

Those are not uncommon concerns among some safety-sensitive employees, and many employers have been challenged in court to demonstrate that their programs are truly random. The reality is that in a truly random selection process, a high probability exists that some employees will be selected several times while others may never be selected. Why? Because after each selection, the employee’s name is returned to the same pool, and he or she becomes just as likely as anyone else to be selected next time.

What are the retention times for drugs?

1 hour per unit/drink
2 - 6 days
3 - 8 days
2 - 14 days
Usually 2 - 4 weeks; however, single use may be undetectable after 5 days
3 - 7 days
