Easy to Find Drug Testing Equipment, Consumables & Supplies

In June, Drug Testing Program Management launched a new online store to better serve our customers.

We’ve added more products, reagents, and chemicals, and reorganized things to make it easier to find what you need and search for new product choices. The new store is built in Magento, an enterprise level e-commerce system with the flexibility and robust scalability to meet the needs of our growing client base in the years ahead.

Our new web store is fully mobile, accommodating the increasing need to be usable across a wide range of Internet enabled devices, and features Live Chat, a Ticketing System, and Client Account access.

At DTPM, we offer custom pricing on all our products, from laboratory equipment and supplies to point of care and safety and apparel.

To learn more, visit the new DTPM Online Store and chat with our service desk, or give us a call at 256-845-1261. We look forward to serving you.

A Focus on Addiction Treatment Centers

Laboratory Setup with No Upfront Costs

The numbers are staggering. According to a piece by ABC News, over 21.5 million people in the U.S. have a problem with substance abuse. It’s an epidemic that has spawned a $35 billion dollar annual addiction treatment industry.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, there are now over 14,500 specialized drug treatment facilities providing counseling, behavioral therapy, medication, and other services to combat this enormous public health problem.

At DTPM, a key part of our mission is to provide treatment centers with the in-house ability to run state-of-the-art drug and alcohol testing. Our comprehensive solutions include everything needed to establish, manage, and run a toxicology laboratory. We provide facility design, state-of-the-art equipment, assistance in certification and staffing, reagent and laboratory supplies, laboratory information software, responsive customer service, and more.

Best of all, our custom pricing agreements assure affordability, including establishing a new laboratory with no upfront costs.

Over Half of Employers Drug Test

Drug & Alcohol Testing Expected to Increase

According to an article on Employment Law Daily, more than half of employers conduct drug tests on all job candidates, while the New York Times, reports that the number of positive drug tests are increasing, as are the number of employers implementing toxicology testing requirements.

From heroin to fentanyl, more than 50,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2015, the most ever.

After years of intense anti-drunk driving campaigns and educational efforts, drunk driving deaths also rose at a rate that hasn’t been seen in over 50 years.
The numbers are not good, however, to quote a poll by the Society for Human Resource Management “organizations are reporting positive impacts related to drug and alcohol testing that supports the efficacy of these programs.”
