Drug Testing Q&A

What is drug testing?

Many drugs alter your brain chemistry, which leads to cravings when you’re not using the substance. When you attempt to stop using them on your own, it’s common to experience symptoms of withdrawal that make stopping especially challenging. 


Drug testing is a careful evaluation of any drugs in your system. Your provider may gather information through diagnostic tests such as urine, hair, blood, or saliva tests. 


The team at Aztec Urgent Care specializes in drug testing on-site, so you can receive the prompt help for you or a loved one. 

Why do I need drug testing?


If you’re wondering whether you or someone close to you needs drug treatment, professional testing with the team at Aztec Urgent Care can give you the answers you seek. 


In most cases, if you’re thinking about drug testing, there’s a good chance that you or a loved one can benefit from treatment. 


Some things to consider include: 


  • Have there been any failed attempts to quit using drugs? 
  • Do you or your loved one need professional support to quit using drugs? 
  • Do you need supervised detox to get off drugs safely? 
  • Are there any mental health conditions, such as depression, that coexist with dependency on drugs? 


If you can answer these questions with a “yes,” then drug testing may be the first step in your recovery program. 

Which drugs are available for testing?


Some of the most common drugs people are tested for include: 


  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Nicotine
  • Narcotics and opioids
  • Cocaine


It’s not always clear to see substance misuse tendencies in yourself, but others may take note of your changing behaviors. 

What happens after drug testing? 


After testing your system for drugs, the team at Aztec Urgent Care can make recommendations for drug treatment. Your treatment plan is personalized to your needs. 


Along with a detox program, they may recommend support groups or other health specialists to treat mental health conditions that may affect your ability to quit drug use.
