Drug Testing for Drug & Alcohol Addiction in New Brunswick

Drug and alcohol addiction affects many people and families living throughout the province of New Brunswick, and because of this, certain precautionary measures are being taken to ensure people are not abusing drugs within professional or other environments. Drug rehabilitation centers will commonly administer a drug test to new clients when they first arrive to find out what types of drugs they are using, and how the detox will be for the client. In other circumstances, drug tests are administered by employers to the employees and contract workers, and this is a preventative measure to ensure no one is abusing or using illegal drugs within the workplace. Employer drug testing occurs more frequently than what a person may think, and is common with new hires and current employees, but each place of employment will have different rules and regulations set in place pertaining to how these drug tests can be carried out. A drug-testing service's facility can offer lab testing for blood work, hair samples, and other bodily fluids. Others services these drug-testing organizations include is the supply of drug testing kits for anyone who needs these kits to administer onsite drug testing.

Law Enforcement Agencies and Breathalyzers

Breathalyzer tests are widely used by every law enforcement agency throughout Canada and are a method of detecting the blood-alcohol concentration within a person's body. This type of testing has been responsible for preventing many people from drinking and driving, but has led to thousands of people each year being charged with a DUI or a DWI. It is a very quick and efficient way of determining how intoxicated a person may be, and can be administered right on the side of a road. With a person taking a deep breath and blowing into a breathalyzer, the officer can see what his or her blood-alcohol content is at, as each province has very similar numbers, a person must not blow over in order for them to not be charged with a DUI. In order for an accurate reading to be measured on a breathalyzer, the person must blow into it for a minimum of five to six seconds, and this will indicate what his or her blood-alcohol content is at. When a person is charged with a DUI, it will lead to many serious problems they will have to deal with, which may include jail time, and having to pay large fines.
