Testing begins with screening tests for alcohol and drugs of abuse. Positives are confirmed and quantitated by definitive methods (gas chromatography-flame ionization detector for ethanol; gas chromatography-mass spectrometry for barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine and metabolites, methadone, phencyclidine, and tetrahydrocannabinol metabolite) at an additional charge. Amphetamines and opiates that screen positive will be quantified with liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry at an additional charge.
