JSI Can Support and Improve
Your Drug Testing Program

Drug Testing is important for business, the courts, community supervision, and correctional facilities to ensure drug free individuals and ultimately reduce the likelihood of drug related deaths.  

For businesses, drug use can lower productivity and the revenue of a business; it can even place employees at risk.

For the courts, drug testing is of vital importance in aiding the prevention of drug abuse by engaging drug misusing offenders as early as possible.

For community supervision and correctional facilities the failure to address “drug use in the criminal legal system has been identified as the single most significant reason for arrest and recidivism once released.” (Kathryn Nowotny, Race/ethnic disparities in the utilization of treatment for drug dependent inmates in U.S. State correctional facilities, Addictive Behaviors, Volume 40, January 2015, Pages 148–153)

An effective drug testing program is more than having a person provide a specimen and then test it.  Best Practices provide the steps for truly a full and effective program from start to finish. The Justice Speakers Institute can support your program, educating your team on each of the steps.

Drug use and abuse can have serious consequences for everyone, the courts, corrections, businesses, friends and family. Let us help you start now to develop and enforce an effective drug testing program.
