Drug Testing in your Child Custody or DHR/CPS Case? Hair Tests Can Save you Time and Money

Updated: Mar 14

If the Court has ordered you to drug test or you’re participating with drug testing through an ISP with DHR, hair testing or hair follicle testing can provide an even more reliable testing regimen with a much lower time commitment and, over time, even save you money.

If you work for a living to support yourself and your family, you might not be able to duck out of work, travel to a drug testing facility, wait in line or do whatever you have to do to participate in a drug testing regimen either as part of your recovery or as part of the preparation for your Child Custody, Divorce or DHR / CPS case.

A hair test or a hair follicle test can identify any illicit substances used in the last 2-3 months rather whereas a urine test may only identify illicit substances within the last couple of days if that long.

Hair tests are more expensive, PER TEST, but one hair test easily costs less than the 5 or 6 or more urine tests that you would need, or DHR would want, to cover the same time period.
