Detect and monitor substance abuse in employees

Whether it’s a condition of employment, due to an accident or injury, or simply to support a safe and productive workplace, it’s not uncommon for employers to ask employees to take random or scheduled drug tests. In fact, in many cases, certain industries require it, including transportation, healthcare, government, and construction.

Substance abuse – either while on the job or before/after work hours – can negatively impact employees and employers. For example, according to the American Council for Drug Education, 40% of on-the-job industrial fatalities are substance abusers.

The key to preventing substance abuse from taking over the life of an employee is identifying it as early as possible and pursuing treatment before the situation spirals out of control. If usage is detected promptly, potential injuries or other issues can be prevented before they impact other workers – or the entire organization. By testing early and often, you can also avoid potential absenteeism and productivity issues.

Behavioral Diagnostics’ testing tools, such as Alcohol Signature®, can help employers detect and monitor employee substance abuse, as well as follow progress once a problem is identified and a treatment plan is in place.

Early Detection

These tests measure the exact level of DNA methylation that has taken place from consumption of alcohol or tobacco. 

A quantitative result is produced, which can be used to establish a baseline diagnosis of a patient’s overall health and abuse of the substance.  

Using these methods, our tests are able to provide detailed and personalized advice for treatment plans for substance abuse, as well as quantify eight-year lung cancer risks.   

Understanding Your Results

These results are easy for employers to process, and present a clear picture of an employee’s past and current substance use.  Using the relevant data provided, employers can decide on new hires, and evaluate current employees in regards to possible treatment plan options, if necessary.


We have specific pricing for Employers.  Contact us here to find out more.

Our Promise
Accurate results

In a matter of hours, an Alcohol or Smoke Signature© test can identify and quantify consumption over time. Even if they haven’t been used in several days, the test can provide results that measure average consumption over time so that appropriate decisions can be made. This is possible due to the measurement of the exact level of DNA methylation – modification of a gene without changing the sequence – which quantifies smoking or alcohol consumption over long periods of time. 

Lung CA™ Screening quantifies 8-year lung cancer risk and provides personalized guidance for shared decision making on LDCT screening. 

Our patented testing method uses data from over 3,000 subjects in the NLST and powerful artificial intelligence computation methods to calculate your eight-year risk for lung cancer. Based on this data and your personal medical status, you and your doctor can decide whether the costs and risks of LDCT screening are right for you.

The signature advantage

It’s time everyone had a new relationship with their health.

Our team at Behavioral Diagnostics produces one-of-a-kind health screening tests for tobacco and alcohol abuse, as well as lung cancer screenings. 

These are simple take-home kits that can be self-administered by patients, sent off to a lab, and returned with up-to-date results in a matter of days. Within a week after taking the test, you’ll have the opportunity to completely reengage with your health in a way you never have before.

We’re a team of scientists, researchers, and business professionals with over thirty years of experience in each of our fields, and we share one aim: making good health accessible to all. By producing these tests, we hope people find new ways to approach their health and well-being, backed by the peer-reviewed results of decades of hard scientific work and practice.

If health truly is a kind of wealth, it’s debatably the most accessible form of wealth everyone has a chance to achieve. We’d like to contribute towards a world where that isn’t just a dream, but an active reality for all—and it starts with a few simple tests.
