OHR Home - Careers - Drug and Alcohol Screening

Some applicants will be required to pass a urine drug and alcohol screening as a condition of employment. The test will be scheduled at the Montgomery County Occupational Medical Services facility and must be completed prior to starting work.

The test will detect the presence of alcohol for up to 24 hours as well as the presence of numerous drugs for longer periods of time. The applicant will be given an opportunity to identify prescription or over-the-counter drugs taken. Montgomery County Government follows professionally accepted practices for ensuring privacy, accuracy and confidentiality. If the specimen is found to be positive for drugs and/or alcohol, applicants are entitled to have the same specimen tested independently at a different certified laboratory at the applicant's own expense.
