Drug Testing / 520.538.1289

At the Drug Testing Collection Point, our responsibilities are to train commanders' selected NCOs to become Unit Prevention Leaders (UPLs) who can effectively conduct substance abuse prevention activities in their units. Each unit is required to have a certified primary and an alternate UPL. Certification is good for 18 months and must be maintained in order to collect samples.

The Collection Point team is also responsible for the collection and performance of quality assurance of each specimen that arrives at our office. Quality assurance is performed to maintain the integrity of each specimen collected, make sure the proper testing code was used for a particular test and that chain of custody is maintained at all times in accordance with AR 600-85.

The Drug Testing Collection Point also conducts collections and processes civilian samples for designated testing positions.
