There are various situations in which individuals may be legally required to undergo alcohol and drug testing, including:
Child custody cases: Legal battles over child custody may involve allegations of drug or alcohol use, which can influence decisions in the child's best interest.
DUI or DWI arrests: Arrests or convictions for DUI or DWI often result in court-ordered drug and alcohol testing.
Probation testing: Mandated testing is a standard condition of probation, whether it's federal probation, county probation, or drug courts across Michigan.
Court-ordered drug tests come with detailed instructions specifying the test type and the drugs to screen for. If sample collection requires witnessing to prevent tampering or substitution, those requirements will be clearly outlined in the court order.Alcohol and Drug Testing

Scheduling drug and alcohol testing service is simple and easy. Call (248) 618-0071. We are open 7 days a week and on Holidays. Same day service is available and walk-ins are always welcome!
Alcohol testing includes urine alcohol testing (ETG), preliminary breath tests (PBT), and breath alcohol tests (EBT). Urine alcohol tests and PBT tests are inexpensive and easy to conduct, making them great options for personal use, such as parents wanting to determine if their child has consumed alcohol. They are also suitable for legal purposes, like probation alcohol testing.
However, standard alcohol testing may not be the best choice for workplace testing. It's challenging to correlate urine alcohol concentration with the legal benchmark, which is blood alcohol. For workplace clients wishing to assess impairment or the prohibited use of alcohol, Michigan Court Services recommends breath alcohol testing.
Michigan Court Services employs various types of testing, including multi-drug screening tests to detect substances like Marijuana (THC), Cocaine (COC), Oxycodone (OXY), Ecstasy (MDMA), Buprenorphine (BUP), Morphine/Opiates (MOP), Amphetamines (AMP), Barbiturates (BAR), Benzodiazepines (BZO), Methamphetamines (MET), Methadone (MTD), Phencyclidine (PCP), as well as other commonly abused illicit and prescription drugs.
For employers and individuals seeking a cost-effective and time-tested method to detect nearly any drug, urine screenings are the preferred choice. There are many advantages to urine testing. Drugs quickly enter a person's urine, making them detectable almost immediately after consumption.
Saliva Drug Testing – Oral Fluids Drug Test
The mouth swab drug test is the least invasive method of drug testing. It does not require needle pokes, cutting your hair from the roots as with hair follicle drug test or peeing in a cup.

Why Pre-employment Drug Testing is Essential
Many companies conduct drug testing to take advantage of incentives, such as reductions in workers' compensation insurance rates. In reality, any employer aiming to ensure a safe, productive work environment and minimize the risks associated with employee drug use should implement employment drug testing.
When Employment Drug Testing Typically Occurs
An employee drug testing program encompasses both pre-employment and post-hire screening. Employers should carefully consider when testing will occur and ensure consistency in requirements across the company.
Pre-Employment: The most common type of drug test is pre-employment drug testing, conducted as a condition of future employment.
Post-Accident: Employers should conduct employee drug testing after an accident or incident to determine if drug use may have played a role.
Random: Most employers aim to establish a random employee alcohol and drug testing program, where a percentage of all employees are screened randomly throughout the year. This is an excellent way to ensure employees remain drug-free beyond the standard pre-employment drug testing.
Reasonable Suspicion: With the increasing use of marijuana, it is even more critical for employers to require employee drug testing when illegal drug use is suspected. Employers are strongly encouraged to train their managers on how to accurately detect and handle situations involving reasonable suspicion.
Pre-Placement: For employees returning to work after an injury or absence.
Return to Duty: Employees who fail an employee drug test and are ready to return to the workplace may be required to undergo a return-to-duty employee drug test.

Drug Testing For Driver's License Restoration
Michigan License Restoration Hearing: Drug Testing
If your driver's license has been suspended or revoked, there are specific steps you must take to regain it and get back on the road legally. The initial and crucial step in this process is obtaining a copy of your driving record to review its contents. It's essential to check for any potential issues, such as tickets or other infractions, not just on your Michigan driving record but also on records from other states where you may have driven.
Outstanding tickets and fines from other states can have a significant impact on your ability to obtain or restore a Michigan driver's license. Therefore, it's advisable to thoroughly examine your driving record from any other state where you've held a license. You can obtain your certified and complete driving record from your local Secretary of State (SOS) office.
Understanding the status of your driving record in all relevant jurisdictions is a crucial first step towards the successful restoration of your Michigan driver's license.Drug and Alcohol Related Offense Stop
If your license was revoked due to Operating While Intoxicated (OWI), the penalties are considerably more severe than for many other traffic violations, making the process of regaining your license more challenging. OWI involves operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or both.
Before you request a hearing, it's essential to complete a substance use evaluation. This evaluation must be conducted by a state-approved licensed evaluator. If you require a referral to a licensed evaluator, please feel free to call us at 248-618-0071.
In the State of Michigan, a 12-panel urine test is required for driver's license restoration. The sample must be tested for at least two integrity variables. Michigan Court Services, Inc. exclusively utilizes a State-approved laboratory for all testing supplies and sends specimens to the laboratory for the necessary confirmations.
It's crucial to note that some drug testing companies may not be aware of Michigan's specific requirements, leading to wasted time and money on tests that lack state approval. Many clients, including those from out of state, turn to us for their driver's license restoration tests because we are well-versed in precisely what the state requires.
For scheduling your driver's license restoration testing, please call us at 248-618-0071. We're here to assist you throughout the process.DNA Testing
The most commonly requested DNA test is the Paternity Test, which conclusively determines whether a man is the biological father of a child. DNA Paternity Testing represents the most advanced and accurate method available for establishing parentage, whether for medical, legal, or personal reasons.
Thanks to advanced DNA technology, paternity testing has become accurate, swift, and affordable. It's now possible to determine paternity within 1 to 3 business days after the samples arrive at the laboratory, with results promptly released upon completion of testing.Types of DNA Paternity Testing
At Michigan Court Services, we offer two types of DNA paternity testing:
1. Private Paternity TestingPrivate paternity DNA testing is an excellent choice when you seek answers for personal knowledge or peace of mind only. Michigan Court Services provides the specimen collection kit and sends samples to the laboratory. Please note that the results of private paternity testing are not admissible in court.
2. Legal Paternity TestLegal Paternity Testing, also known as chain-of-custody testing, is designed for court use and is accepted as definitive legal proof of paternity or non-paternity in court proceedings. It can also serve as evidence for matters such as child support, custody, immigration, birth certificates, social security, and other legal purposes.
If you choose the legal testing option, an appointment will be scheduled for all parties involved to provide samples at a designated Michigan Court Services, Inc. chain-of-custody sample collection facility.DNA Relationship Test
In addition to paternity testing, we offer DNA relationship testing as an alternative when the alleged father of a child is unavailable for testing. We provide the following DNA tests:
1. Siblings DNA TestOur siblings DNA testing services help brothers and sisters determine whether they share both biological parents, one biological parent, or have no biological parents in common.
2. Aunt/Uncle DNA TestThe aunt-uncle DNA test, also known as an avuncular test, establishes genetic relationships between aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews. The test results provide the probability of relationships between all tested parties.
3. Grandparent DNA TestWhen clients need to establish a child's paternity through the child's paternal grandparents, we recommend a grandparents test. Testing both grandparents, if available, yields more conclusive results. As with all relationship testing, a sample from a common parent, usually the mother, is strongly recommended. The cost of the grandparents test varies based on the number of individuals being tested; please contact our office for a custom quote.
