Drugs of Abuse

The drug testing industry has changed drastically over the past 40 years. With the rise in prescription use and misuse and the worsening of street drugs and their potency, it is important to stay informed as to the most common drugs of abuse.


Advances in prescription medications are extremely helpful in many cases. Some individuals who may have previously struggled to work are now able to successfully perform the duties of their job.

However, when abused these medications can be just as dangerous as common street drugs. By remaining knowledgeable of these substances, you can ensure that your drug testing panel includes everything necessary to keep your business and employees safe.

It should be noted that an MRO (Medical Review Officer) is responsible for verifying that an individual has a valid prescription if the final report is positive for a medication.

Below is a comprehensive list of medications and street drugs that are most used today.
