Where there is a person using drugs, there is likely a person looking to cheat their next drug test. According to recent statistics, 55% of people who have used drugs have at one time attempted to cheat an employer-administered drug screening.
There are a variety of methods people use to try and cheat a drug test. The most popular methods typically involve some form of dilution, substitution, or adulteration of the sample. People can find hundreds of commercial products online, like Mary Jane Super Clean 13 or Goldenscreen, which promise a clean result by diluting or adulterating the sample. Other methods use “doping” chemicals like soap, salt, bleach or eye drops. Some of the more bizarre strategies include drinking large doses of vinegar to lower the urine’s pH or using animal urine as a substitute. Moral of the story – those who are motivated to cheat a drug test will go to great lengths to do so!
How can you reduce the likelihood of drug test cheating at your school or place of business? The answer is simple – on-site testing.
On-site drug and alcohol testing helps to reduce the opportunity for people to tamper with evidence through dilution, substitution or adulteration methods. Catching a cheat is easy when you have the right service provider in place and on-site!
