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

Local Area Info: Harker Heights, Texas

Harker Heights is a city in Bell County, Texas, United States. As of the 2010 census, 26,700 people resided in the city, up from a population of 17,308 in 2000. This makes Harker Heights the third-largest city in Bell County, after Killeen and Temple. Incorporated in 1960, the city derives its name from one of the two original landowners and founder, Harley Kern. Harker Heights is part of the Killeen Temple Fort Hood metropolitan area. People usually refer to the town as just "Heights".

Harker Heights is located near Fort Hood, a major United States Army post that was designated a permanent military facility in 1950. As the post expanded, the surrounding civilian population increased. Water Control and Improvement District No. 4 was established on land near the Killeen city limits and the military post in 1955, and included the land owned by Pinckney R. Cox and Harley Kern, two hog farmers. These two men subdivided their land in 1957 and began selling lots. By 1960, between 600 and 700 of the lots had been developed and new residents supplied with water and other utility services. Following a petition for an incorporation election, the city was established on September 24, 1960, and Cox was elected mayor. Kern had died before the incorporation, and the Harker in Harker Heights was a concatenation of Harley Kern's name as a tribute to one of the original landowners. The town's boundaries expanded to include Forest Hills, Highland Oaks, and Comanche Hills. Cox, Sam Garth Jr., and Barney Sissom created GIASISCO Corporation, which was meant to help expand the town from 400 to 950 acres (160 to 380ha).

Harker Heights is located in west-central Bell County at 314?6?N 9739?20?W? / ?31.06833N 97.65556W? / 31.06833; -97.65556 (31.068459, -97.655524). It is bordered by the city of Killeen to the west and Nolanville to the east. The city limits extend south to hills overlooking Stillhouse Hollow Lake on the Lampasas River.
