What is the New DOT 5 panel Drug Test?

On January 1, 2018 the Department of Transportation updated its 5-panel drug test. Employers and safety sensitive individuals should also be aware that DOT Drug Testing at HHS-certified laboratories is a 5-panel drug test procedure.

  • Opioids
  • Phencyclidine (PCP)

Under ‘Opioids’, previously ‘Opiates’, DOT testing will continue to include confirmatory testing, when appropriate, for Codeine, Morphine, and 6-AM (heroin).

Under Amphetamines, DOT testing includes confirmatory testing, when appropriate, for Amphetamine, Methamphetamine, MDMA, and MDA. To this Amphetamines group, we added initial testing for MDA and removed testing for MDEA.

Since January 1st, we have required confirmation testing for 14 drugs under a 5-panel test. Broken out, here is what DOT drug testing looks like:

  • Marijuana (THC)

    What is an instant drug test?

    An instant drug test is a test administered at a drug testing facility in which the specimen is tested by the technician using a dipstick or other type of immediate analysis process. Instant tests are very sensitive and should not be used for court ordered or any disciplinary action against an employee. The results of an instant test in which the test is non-negative should always be sent to a SAMHSA certified laboratory for confirmation testing. An example of the sensitivity of an instant test would be a person taking a completely legal diet pill as part of a weight loss program, but the instant test reports a positive result for amphetamines when a laboratory analysis may not do so. Any time an instant test has a positive result for any drug screened in the specimen should be sent to a certified laboratory for confirmation testing and verification by a Medical Review Officer.

    The Opioid Overdose Crisis

    Every day, more than 130 people in the United States die after overdosing on opioids. The misuse of and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl—is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the total "economic burden" of prescription opioid misuse alone in the United States is $78.5 billion a year, including the costs of healthcare, lost productivity, addiction treatment, and criminal justice involvement

    • Roughly 21 to 29 percent of patients prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse them.
    • Between 8 and 12 percent develop an opioid use disorder.
    • An estimated 4 to 6 percent who misuse prescription opioids transition to heroin.
    • About 80 percent of people who use heroin first misused prescription opioids.
    • Opioid overdoses increased 30 percent from July 2016 through September 2017 in 52 areas in 45 states.
    • The Midwestern region saw opioid overdoses increase 70 percent from July 2016 through September 2017.
    • Opioid overdoses in large cities increase by 54 percent in 16 states.

    In the late 1990s, pharmaceutical companies reassured the medical community that patients would not become addicted to prescription opioid pain relievers, and healthcare providers began to prescribe them at greater rates. This subsequently led to widespread diversion and misuse of these medications before it became clear that these medications could indeed be highly addictive.3,4 Opioid overdose rates began to increase. In 2017, more than 47,000 Americans died as a result of an opioid overdose, including prescription opioids, heroin, and illicitly manufactured fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid.1That same year, an estimated 1.7 million people in the United States suffered from substance use disorders related to prescription opioid pain relievers, and 652,000 suffered from a heroin use disorder (not mutually exclusive)

    Derita is a neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina and is located several miles north of Charlotte. The neighborhood is bordered by I-77 to the west, I-85 to the east, and WT Harris Blvd to the north. Its business district is centered along West Sugar Creek Rd. Derita is located in almost the exact center of Mecklenburg County.

    The community became established 1860. Before that point, Derita was made up of large family farms carved from the forests and fields where the Sugaree Indians had made flint arrowheads and hunted for wild game. The first post office was established in 1882 with Amos L. Rumple as postmaster. The village was named after Derita Lewis, a friend of Mr. Rumple.

    By the early-1950-60's the farms were giving way to rooftops as Charlotte's residential growth expanded. Today there are over 60,000 rooftops in the Derita area. Corporations like IBM and the (First Union) Wachovia Center moved into the Derita area. CMS launched an education experiment here called Governor's Village by clustering schools from Grades 1 - 12. Mecklenburg County purchased huge tracts of woodlands in the Derita area to create 320-acre (1.3km2) Nevin Community Park and the 192-acre (0.78km2) RibbonWalk Forest nature preserve. The headquarters for MEDIC, the Mecklenburg EMS Agency, are also located on Statesville Rd.

    Derita is ethnically diverse and has a wide variety of housing stock from apartments, condos, and townhouses to starter homes, patio homes, second homes, and ranch-style homes on large wooded lots. It is a mix of older neighborhoods, newer HOA's, and developing neighborhoods --- represented by an umbrella Community Organization (DSRCO), now in its 45th year.
