When you are told to submit to testing, you are to submit to a urine test. The test must check your urine for drugs and alcohol, unless otherwise specified by your Probation Officer. You must submit to a standard drug panel and ETG (test for alcohol use for up to 72 hours). The test also must be witnessed. The results shall be sent to your Probation Officer. When you signed up for probation, you signed a Urine Abstinence Testing and Incidental Alcohol Exposure Form. This form will give you a list of things that you will need to avoid or limit your contact with while on probation.
Do not consume excessive amounts of liquids before testing, for this will cause your sample to be diluted.
Diluted tests = Failed tests.
