Drug Testing Center

Opened last July 27, 2011, the SEHI Drug Testing Center offers in-patient, out-patient, and remote collection services. Most commonly drug testing is used as a requirement for pre-employment, licensing for LTO, carrying firearms, and others.

Urinalysis is the most common test type and used by government mandated drug testing programs and is considered the Gold Standard of drug testing, thus there is a strict protocol on the collection of the specimen.

Since the facility is accredited by the Department of Health and the Bureau of Health Facilities and Services, you are assured that the results are reliable and tamper-proof.
