Evaluation of Teens and College-Age Individuals
for Drug Abuse

Our clinicians have special expertise in evaluating adolescents and college-age individuals for drug and/or alcohol dependence. In addition to a thorough clinical interview, we offer comprehensive, on-site urine drug testing and saliva alcohol testing. If treatment is recommended, we discuss the full spectrum of therapeutic options with the parent or other referral source.

WellStep Atlanta has developed a special, expanded drug testing panel to include drugs commonly abused in the teen and college-age population.

Our drug test panel includes amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine metabolite, marijuana metabolite, methadone, opiates, phencyclidine. In addition, our panel separately tests for oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet) and mdma (ecstasy).

All specimens are initially screened by enzyme immunoassay (EIA). Presumptive positives are confirmed by gas chromatograph/mass spectrometry (GCMS).
