What is "Passive Exposure"?

Passive exposure is when someone is exposed to an illegal substance without actually ingesting or using the substance themselves. Passive exposure often occurs with children who live in drug-exposed environments.

Passive Exposure Drug Testing

We often work with social workers and those in the legal system, as they’re often on the case trying to help children in dangerous home environments. Traditional drug tests aren’t made to detect this degree of exposure. Our staff is here to help you positively identify or rule out serious problems with chain-of-custody that will prove admissible in court.

Understanding Positive Results

A positive passive exposure drug test result can indicate:

  • Direct contact with smoke/drugs
  • Accidental ingestion
  • Contact with a user’s sweat or skin oils
  • Physical contact with drug-related substances such as paraphernalia

Drugs We Can Identify Using Passive Exposure Testing

– Phencyclidine (PCP)

– Amphetamine/Methamphetamine

– Cannabinoids (THC/Marijuana)

– Cocaine (Crack and Cocaine HCI)
