By most accounts, the drug and alcohol testing industry is about 30 years old. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan issued Executive Order 12564, which established a drug-free workplace in the federal government and presented a model for drug-free workplace programs for American businesses. This article focuses on the current state of the drug and alcohol testing industry in the United States even though we are now seeing the drug testing industry growing stronger globally.


Testing Industry Association (DATIA) recently held its Annual Conference at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV and with 834 atendees, 80 exhibit booths and informative expert presenters; it was a great conference. I personally spoke to more than 100 atendees and every single one said business is good, healthy, and growing. More than a few stated that business is booming and several more stated that a lot depends on the continuing improvement of the economy and growing employment figures in the United States.
