There are many situations in which someone may be legally required to undergo alcohol and drug testing, such as:

DUI or DWI Arrests - arrests or convictions for DUI or DWI often require court-ordered drug and alcohol testing.
Probation Testing - mandated testing as a condition of probation is standard with federal probation, county probation, and drug courts across Michigan.
Court ordered drug tests will contain detailed instructions specifying the type of test to be administered and the drugs that should be screened for. If sample collection needs to be witnessed in order to prevent potential tampering or substitution, those specifications will be stated in the court order.
Child Custody Drug and Alcohol Testing
Unfortunately, many of us go through tough life situations such as a divorce or a break-up where children are involved. If the living environment also involves illicit drug use, then serious decisions must be made in order to ensure a child’s safety.
Legal battles involving child custody may include issues of drug or alcohol use in one or both of the former spouses. In order to protect the children, an ongoing program of random drug testing is agreed between the parties or court ordered. The program may include testing of either spouse at the time of visitation or custody.
A parent can get a court-order requiring the other party to submit child custody drug and alcohol testing on a random or periodic basis. This could be testing just prior to, or just after, a period of time in which the parent has sole custody of the child or children. You can register for urine testing or sign up for a random testing program. Please contact us at 248-618-0071.
An individual’s drug use, whether it be only occasional or frequent use, can put a child in significant danger. Thus any allegations of illicit drug and/or alcohol misuse during child custody cases are treated very seriously. A court may refuse to grant custody or may choose to require supervised visitations for an individual accused of drug or alcohol abuse.
For those parents that are concerned that their former spouse or partner is engaged in illicit drug or alcohol abuse, they have the right to request that their former spouse be drug and/or alcohol tested. The most frequently used child custody alcohol and drug tests are:
5 panel drug test, 10 panel drug test and the 12 panel drug test.
Michigan Court Services uses SAMHSA-certified laboratories, to ensure your results accurate and reliable.
Probation Drug Testing
Individuals that have problems with the law are often required by courts to have random drug and alcohol test for probation. Court-ordered testing may be conducted randomly or on a scheduled basis.
Courts will often order a series of drug tests as a condition of pre-trial services. Probation drug testing varies, based on the individual’s offense and the court’s determination.
Michigan Court Services provides accurate and reliable results for drug and alcohol testing that meets pre-trial or probation requirements. We have an easy system for probation officers to access clients test results via our secure online portal. The results can be also faxed to a probation officer, the court, or an attorney.
The most common court-ordered tests include the 5 panel, 10 panel, urine alcohol, and EtG alcohol screenings. These tests detect alcohol and commonly abused street and prescription drugs.
Michigan Court Services uses Random Color Code System for scheduling random drug testing. This is the most popular method used by probation courts to determine who, when and how often someone should be required to complete a drug and/or alcohol test. An individual on probation will be assigned a specific color and will be required to call into the probation courts every day. A recorded message will inform an individual on which color(s) and or numbers must report to a collection site for a random drug and/or alcohol test. If an individual does not report for their drug and/or alcohol test, they will be found in violation of the terms of their probation.
