How do peace of mind home drug and alcohol tests work?

Our peace of mind home drug and alcohol tests work by analysing urine or nail clipping samples for the presence of drugs and/or alcohol.

When a person consumes drugs or alcohol, these substances are processed by the liver, and their metabolites are released into the bloodstream.

These substances and their metabolites can then be detected using urine drug testing or nail drug and/or alcohol testing.

A major benefit of peace of mind home drug and alcohol tests is that they enable you to collect your samples at home, without the need for a more time-consuming and costly third party to verify the sample collection.

As the name suggests, a peace of mind home drug or alcohol test is for personal use only.

These tests can help lessen any worries you might have or enable you to seek support for a child or loved one who is abusing drugs and/or alcohol.  However, the results of the test cannot be used in court or during legal proceedings.

If you require a drug and/or alcohol test for legal matters, you will need a legal drug test or a legal alcohol test.

What samples are required for home drug and alcohol tests?

Our home drug and alcohol test kits have been specially designed so that you can collect your own samples quickly and easily at home.

Home Urine Drug Test Kit

Available for just £18, our Home Urine Drug Test Kit is a fully self-contained screening kit that can detect the presence of 10 different drugs and their metabolites, with only a urine sample required.

Once the urine sample has been collected, results can be read in just a few minutes using the test strips that are built into the pot, with no handling of urine required.

The presence of two magenta-coloured lines indicates a negative result for the corresponding drug.

When no lines appear at the Test line, and only the magenta-coloured line appears at the Control line, this indicates a reaction for the corresponding drug.

Drug and Alcohol Nail Test

For this innovative peace of mind test – as seen in the Daily Express – our award-winning laboratory uses the very latest scientific techniques to analyse fingernail clippings or toenail clippings for the presence of certain drug and/or alcohol biomarkers. 

The presence of these biomarkers indicates that the sample donor has used drugs and/or alcohol within a certain period prior to the samples being collected.

You can choose to test for drugs and alcohol (£149), alcohol only (£99) or drugs only (£99) by choosing your preferred option when placing your order.

Once you have received your test kit, simply follow the instructions included in your kit to collect your fingernail clippings OR toenail clippings and return them to our laboratory.

Fingernails provide us with an approximate six-month overview of drug/alcohol use, while toenails provide us with an approximate 12-month overview of drug/alcohol use. This is because fingernails and toenails grow at different rates.

You should only submit either fingernail clippings OR toenail clippings to be tested, as we cannot test both nail types in the same test.
