Any sort of drug screen or drug test could put you under stress. You might feel intimidated and even tense even if you have not consumed anything illegal.  This test is painless although the procedure could be time consuming in some cases. These urine drug tests are performed for both doctor prescribed medication or even the illegal drugs. You need to visit a lab or medical center where you could take these tests. The drug tests are performed on urine, blood and sometimes even finger nails, hair or saliva too. It essentially depends upon the situation and requirement.

The procedure is quite simple –

You need to leave all your belongings including your mobile, purse and even keep your pockets empty at the time of the test.

You have to pick up a specimen cup from the reception. The cup needs to be sterile and needs to be labeled with a unique id of yours. There are cases where a nurse will accompany you to the rest room supervise and I got fake urine after reading this.

You need to wipe off gently the genital area with the moist cloth provided.

You need to follow the procedure and pass urine in the cup provided. The minimum acceptable quantity is somewhere around 45 mm for a sample.

When you are done, close the lid of the cup and place it in the rack the technician specifies. The date or time when the results will be out will be intimated to you and you have to wait until then! There are some places where the results are instant and they put it on the web with password protection where only the user can see his results. All the tests are confidential and are password protected unless otherwise stated. The physical test certificate could be collected or you could make a print out from the website.
