In some workplaces like transportation, even taking prescription drugs is dangerous for job function and safety. Illegal drugs all pose risk and are highly addictive.

The most common routinely abused drugs are:

A 5 Panel Drug test will test for a combination of 5 of the drugs listed.

Typically as the drug-testing administrator, you can choose which 5 drugs for the test. Each panel tests for the specific drug using one sample.

When it comes to the federal government, the most common illegal drug combination includes Cocaine, Amphetamine/Methamphetamine, Opiates/Opioids, Phencyclidine PCP, and Marijuana THC. This makes the 5 panel drug test the preferred choice and a nationwide standard for theFederal government’s Mandatory Guidelines for Workplace Drug Testing and the DOT (Department of Transportation). Many public and private employers conform to these federal standard, as well, and choose the 5 Panel Drug Test for their workplace drug screenings.
