There may have been a time when testing for the 5 drugs mandated by the federal government was enough. But today if you limit your drug panel to the traditional "SAMHSA 5" you run the real risk of missing drug users with just about every test you conduct.

Which drugs should employers test for? Synthetic drugs like K2 and Spice, as well as seemingly harmless products like Bath Salts, have become as popular as the illegal drugs they try to mimic. Should employers test for these substances? And due to the increased abuse of substances in the extended opiate family such as hydrocodone and oxycodone, among others, should employers consider testing for an expanded opiate panel?

These questions and more will be explored in this enlightening webinar presented by drug testing industry expert Bill Current and sponsored by OraSure Technologies, the leader in oral fluid drug testing.

Attendees will also learn about the latest trends in the usage of emerging drugs and the options they have in staying one step ahead of the users.
