Confidential Individual Testing
At Test Smartly Labs, we offer the option to perform individual self-testing. This allows you to take a test for your information in a confidential environment, and no one else will be able to review the results. We can also provide the results to whomever you designate, along with legal documentation if they try to disclose the information without your consent.
What Drug Test Do I Need?
We commonly answer the question “What’s the cost of a drug test?” The question doesn’t have a simple answer. The price depends entirely on the drug type you want to look for and the panel you select.
A 5-panel test means a test will look for 5 specific drugs in someone’s body while a 10-panel will look for evidence of 10 specific drugs.
Whether the collection is done onsite in our office or a different location, we follow proper protocols and testing procedures that give you peace of mind and results that are valid in court.
Our experts are always ready to assist you in choosing the right test. Contact us today to get started!

How Can Drug Addiction Affect The Family Unit?
It is tragic when you find out your child, spouse, sibling, or friend is addicted to drugs. It not only affects their health and well-being, but it also can put a tremendous strain on the relationship. It can be especially traumatizing to a child if they witness the effects of drugs on an older sibling or parent. Sometimes, the only thing you can do is try to maintain a strong family unit, while also exercising tough love when necessary. Here are some ways you can do this:
- Educate yourself about drug abuse and learn the symptoms
- Don’t try to hide the abuse or enable the user
- Talk to your family about the situation (take into account age and emotional maturity when talking to children)
- Don’t allow yourself to be abused
- Attend family therapy
Dealing with addiction in the family is extremely difficult, but we are here to help with the necessary testing process.
Be prepared for your drug test:
- Bring your Government Issued Picture ID
- Bring Drug Test Paperwork or Authorization
- Complete TSL Intake Form & HIPAA Disclosure
- Pay for your Test on the same day it happens
- Make sure you are hydrated if you are performing a Urine Test
- Expect to have your nail polish removed if getting a Nail Drug Test
- We do not need your prescription information but a Medical Review Officer (MRO) may contact you after collection to verify your medications.
- For urine testing, plan on arriving 3 hours before we close (1 hr minimum) to provide a cushion of time for a shy bladder situation.
- For hair testing, be sure to dry your hair completely before arriving.
- For nail testing, be sure to clean your nails with soap and water before arriving. Also, artificial nails and polish must be removed.

What’s The Turnaround Time For Lab Work?
Average turnaround time is 2-5 business days depending on the complexity of the lab work. Most tests are available in 2-3 days.
Do You Need A List Of My Medications For A Drug Test?
Per protocol, the lab techs are not allowed to receive or ask for your medications. A medical review officer or MRO, a licensed physician who specializes in toxicology, will call you and ask for your medications and your physician’s phone number if it’s detected in your sample during testing. The MRO will then call your physician to verify your medications.
