Alcohol Detection Periods

Breath Alcohol

Current / Immediate

ETG - Urine

80 Hours

Standard Urine

1 - 2 Days

Whether you want to detect current alcohol impairment, recent alcohol consumption, or alcohol usage within the past 3 days, Accredited Drug Testing offers the testing services that fit your needs.

Alcohol tests are administered for a variety of different reasons and greatly differ from drug tests. Drug tests (those that analyze samples of hair and urine) attempt to detect usage of illegal drugs over a lengthy time period, generally ranging from a week to several months. However, alcohol tests are aimed at detecting consumption of a legal - though regulated - substance within a much shorter timeframe. Rather than testing for past usage, an alcohol drug test will register only the immediate presence of alcohol in the human body.

Breath Alcohol Drug Test

Otherwise known as a breathalyzer, Breath Alcohol Test (BATs) make frequent appearances in sitcoms and crime shows. That is because they are quite commonly used given that the test is easy to administer and provides nearly instantaneous results. Police officers rely on breathalyzer exams to detect when drivers are on the road and above the legal alcohol limit. Because BATs provide only a current-moment snapshot of the body's blood alcohol content, they should only be administered when someone is required to be sober at the current time. Such cases would include driving a vehicle or operating heavy machinery.

Accredited Drug Testing centers are dedicated to providing accurate results every time. For that reason, our certified staff only administers DOT-approved Evidential Breath Testing devices (EBTs). Procedures are meticulously controlled to ensure that all results are admissible in a court of law.

DOT only permits a breath alcohol test. Urine alcohol tests are not permitted by the Department of Transportation. Therefore, a DOT regulated employee would take a 5 panel DOT urine test but only a breath alcohol test if required.

Urine Alcohol Drug Test Finally, for rare cases an EtG exam will be administered to determine if alcohol has been consumed over a 5 day period. EtGs are typically reserved for individuals undergoing a court-ordered sobriety or alcohol rehabilitation program.

Saliva / Oral Fluid Alcohol Test

Accredited Drug Testing also offers a saliva specimen alcohol test in addition, to breath and urine testing. Oral fluid alcohol test can provide immediate results or if requested can be sent to certified laboratory for analysis

Confidential alcohol drug tests can be conducted at any location utilizing the Accredited Drug Testing mobile on-site program service.

AI Overview

Alcohol Testing

Alcohol testing is a procedure used to measure an individual's blood alcohol content (BAC) or detect the presence of alcohol in the body. This testing is crucial in various contexts, including law enforcement, workplace safety, and medical screening. For consumers, understanding the available methods and their specific uses can help in making informed decisions about alcohol testing.

Methods of Alcohol Testing

  • Breathalyzer Tests: These are the most common form of alcohol testing, especially used by law enforcement. They measure the alcohol content in the breath, which correlates with blood alcohol levels.
  • Blood Tests: Considered the most accurate method, blood tests directly measure the alcohol concentration in the bloodstream. However, they require professional medical personnel to collect the blood sample.
  • Urine Tests: Urine tests are less commonly used for alcohol because of their less accurate representation of current blood alcohol levels but can detect alcohol consumption up to 24 hours after intake.
  • Saliva Tests: These tests are less invasive and can detect the presence of alcohol in the saliva, which is a good approximation of BAC.

Applications of Alcohol Testing

Alcohol testing is used in several key areas:

  1. Law Enforcement: To enforce drinking and driving laws and ensure public safety.
  2. Workplace Safety: In industries where operating heavy machinery or driving is involved, employers use alcohol testing to ensure a safe work environment.
  3. Health Monitoring: Medical professionals may require alcohol testing for patients undergoing treatment for alcohol use disorder or monitoring those with specific health conditions.

Advantages of Alcohol Testing

Alcohol testing offers several benefits:

  • Prevention of Accidents: It helps in reducing the risk of accidents associated with alcohol consumption, especially in driving and workplace scenarios.
  • Health and Safety Compliance: It ensures compliance with health and safety regulations, particularly in work environments.
  • Support for Recovery Programs: Regular testing can support individuals in recovery programs by holding them accountable and encouraging sobriety.

Limitations of Alcohol Testing

Despite its benefits, alcohol testing has limitations:

  • Variability in Accuracy: Some methods, like breathalyzers, can sometimes give false positives due to factors like diet, medical conditions, or even certain medications.
  • Invasiveness: Some methods, particularly blood tests, are invasive and require professional handling.
  • Privacy Concerns: The necessity to disclose personal consumption habits can raise privacy issues, especially in employment contexts.

In conclusion, alcohol testing plays a critical role in law enforcement, workplace safety, and health care. While it offers numerous benefits in promoting safety and health standards, awareness of its limitations and appropriate use is essential for achieving accurate and reliable results.

Local Area Info: Acton, Maine

Acton is a town in York County, Maine, United States. The population was 2,447 at the 2010 census. It includes the villages of Acton, Miller Corner and South Acton. The town is home to the Acton Fairground, which holds the Acton Fair every late summer. It is part of the Portland–South Portland–Biddeford, Maine metropolitan statistical area.

It was part of the extensive Ossipee Tract sold on November 28, 1668, by Newichawannock Chief Captain Sunday (or Wesumbe) to Francis Small, a trader from Kittery. Small sold a half interest in the tract to Major Nicholas Shapleigh of Eliot. In 1770, heirs found the unrecorded deed and divided the land, with Shapleigh's descendants awarded one half of Limerick and all of Parsonsfield and Shapleigh. First called Hubbardstown Plantation, Shapleigh was in 1785 incorporated and named in honor of Nicholas Shapleigh. Its western portion was set off and incorporated on March 6, 1830, as Acton, named after Acton, England.

The town was first settled at Acton village in 1776 by Benjamin Kimens, Clement Steele and John York, all from York. In 1779, Joseph Parsons built a gristmill on the Salmon Falls River near Wakefield, New Hampshire. Other mills followed at Acton's various water power sites, including sawmills, gristmills, a hemp mill, a carding mill, a felt mill, a tannery and a shoe factory. In 1877, a vein of silver was discovered near Goding Creek and the Lebanon border. Prospectors dug mines during the 1880s, after which the enterprise declined.
