The Benefits of Hair Alcohol Testing Tere are several benefits of hair alcohol testing when compared to other more traditional methods, including: • A non-invasive process—a cosmetically undetectable snip of hair is easily provided


• It’s easy to collect & ship—the sample is easily handled and shipped to a lab from anywhere in the world


• A long window of detection—measures alcohol use over approximately 3 months


• Te test helps determine consumption levels—the results can provide a behavioral indication of excessive use


In cases where a long-term view of alcohol consumption


is needed, or when an assessment of chronic excessive alcohol consumption is required, hair testing can provide a reliable behavioral indication of excessive use. When combined with additional resources or testing methodologies, programs can successfully and thoroughly monitor overall alcohol use and abuse. ❚
