"Just wanted to shoot you both a quick note to tell you how pleased I am with the drug and alcohol saliva testing we have implemented with your products and guidance. It has made my life so much easier and taken a load of liability worry off my chest. We don’t have to worry about tying up employees for hours sending them offsite to be tested. I don’t have to worry about transportation to offsite tests and the liability that goes with it.

An onsite drug and alcohol screen using Intercept lab-based saliva test products from Red Planet and OraSure typically takes me about twenty to thirty minutes to complete from start to finish. I usually do two at once to make it even more efficient. Depending upon the offsite facility’s workload we once used for breath and urine tests, there were times when I would lose not only the employee to be tested for a couple hours, but I’d lose a supervisor or manager who had to accompany him for that time as well. Onsite saliva-based testing is a tremendous time, money, and productivity saver for me.

When we first started the program there was a little “grumbling” or “questioning” from the ranks as there is with any change. But since I’ve actually started administering the tests, those tested say they prefer saliva testing because it is so much more convenient. I’ve done about twenty random tests and a couple of post-incident tests since we started. Not one complaint and not one problem.

Just wanted to let you know things are going well with the program. It’s quick. It’s easy. I never lose sight of the employee so I have no concerns about employees trying to beat the tests. I couldn’t be happier with your products, our new saliva-based testing program, and how it’s working out for me at this point. Thanks for all your help and guidance getting it started at my company.

"Our Company started using Intercept offered through Judy Swartley in 2004. The drug test is easy to administer and saves us time and money because we no longer have to arrange appointments at labs or search for testing facilities close to our job sites. After we administer the test, we receive notification of the results within 24 hours after the lab receives the test. We have found the test to be very reliable and Judy has provided us with excellent service."
-- Sue Stack, Employment Coordinator, New Mexico
 

"My Company has been using the Intercept self-administered, laboratory-based oral drug test and I received a 5% reduction in my Workers' Comp premium just for implementing an approved screening policy. Intercept has been very cost-effective by saving us both time and money. The cost-per-test is less than urine-based lab testing and our employees no longer lose valuable time from the job driving to a lab and waiting to be tested. I receive all negative results in 24 hours. Intercept has been a very effective product for my company and I would definitely recommend Judy Swartley's company and Intercept to other contractors looking to implement drug screening programs or to those who already have urine-based testing in place."
-- Dennis Thomas, President/Owner, Maryland

"I am the Director of Education for an Apprentice Electrician School. We require 100% drug testing for all of our apprentices each year. I have found the Intercept oral test kit to be an effective means of testing our apprentices, it is easy to conduct and less intrusive than urine. Having managed a urine drug testing program while in the military, I can say that the Intercept oral test is without a doubt a more effective means of testing."
-- Christopher J. Burgoyne, COL, U.S. Army (Retired)

"I decided to start a mandatory pre-hire and random drug testing policy. Judy Swartley introduced me to the Intercept oral fluid testing kit and was a great help setting up our drug testing policy. My experience with both Judy and the Intercept product has been excellent. I highly recommend Intercept to all contractors."
-- Greg Semuskie, President/Owner, Maryland

"I've been using Intercept with great success. When employees come for a pre-employment test and we hand them the Intercept kit, they ask, "What's this?" We tell them we don't do urine tests anymore. After seeing the look on their face, they usually say something like, ‘I forgot something in my car....I'll be right back.' They go to their car and never return!! Obviously, they were "prepared" to take a urine test and know they can't beat an oral test."
-- Eric Shatzer, President/Owner, Maryland

"We started a Pro-Active Substance Abuse Testing program in August of 2007. Part of this program includes using the iScreen Oral Fluid product during pre-employment. We believe in this product and know that it is helping us build the best electrical contracting team in Arizona. It's easy to use and the support we get from Judy is great."
-- Fran Martin, Director of Safety, AZ
