Critical Issues in Alcohol and Drugs of Abuse Testing addresses problems encountered in workplace alcohol and drug testing and how to resolve such problems. People try to pass drug tests by using a variety of urinary adulterants, and this book reviews, in detail, how to catch these cheaters. Ingestion of certain prescription medications or poppy seed-containing food, however, may also cause positive results in drug testing. Two chapters are devoted to reviewing true analytical positive results in drugs of abuse testing. In addition, drug testing using alternative specimens such as hair, saliva, and sweat is also addressed. Additional chapters review the following:
  • Pharmacogenomics of alcohol abuse
  • Pharmacogenomics of drugs of abuse
  • Abuse of magic mushrooms, peyote cactus, khat, and volatiles
  • Sports drug testing

Critical Issues in Alcohol and Drugs of Abuse Testing will be helpful to toxicologists, medical review officers, pathologists, and medical technologists as a quick handbook and reference book to address problems encountered in alcohol and drugs of abuse testing.
