DOT Alcohol Testing
Here at Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center, our doctor is certified to perform DOT alcohol testings. We are able to set up DOT alcohol screenings for individuals and companies. We make it easy for you, or your employees to come in and get the required breath alcohol screening done quickly. Give our office a call to set up your alcohol screening today.
Alcohol screening tests for the DOT can be taken by either a breath or saliva test. When the DOT requires an alcohol test, the breath alcohol technician will record the results using a three-part DOT Alcohol Testing Form. First, the screening test is performed. If this test has a positive result (an alcohol concentration of 0.20 or greater), a confirmation breath alcohol test is required within 15 minutes. The results will be printed in triplicate, and the confirmation will also be required as a print-out. A violation of 0.040 or greater requires an evaluation by a substance abuse professional as well as return-to-duty and a follow-up process.
