Clinical Compliance Managed By Student Health Services

Clinical Drug Screen

To complete your urine drug screen follow these steps:

  • Purchase your drug screen through Castle Branch using the package code given to you at your clinical compliance session
  • Verify that you have the appropriate Quest Labs drug screen form given to you at your clinical compliance session OR picked up in the Allied Health office lobby in the white file box. The lab slip should have your program title at the top.
  • Make an appointment at Quest labs (see below).
  • Bring lab slip to the appointment for the urine drug screen

It will take 3-5 days for the results of your drug screen to appear in your Castle Branch account. You do not need to upload any documents. If you do not follow these instructions, you may encounter problems with your drug screen which may delay the process and cause you to become noncompliant.
