River City Drug Testing
We work with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation, Federal Transit Administration, United States Coast Guard, and the California Public Utilities Commision.
Federal regulations require all employees in a safety sensitive position, as designated by DOT, (ie those with a commercial drivers license (CDL)) to be randomly tested for drug & alcohol use. Federal reporting and record keeping are also mandated. We specialize in keeping your company compliant with those regulations, so that you can concentrate on other areas of your business.
The federal government maintains strict laws that require the transportation industry to perform drug testing. But what about the companies that are NOT in the transportation industry? Surprisingly, there are very few federal laws concerning drug testing by companies with non-safety-sensitive employees. However, there are some stipulations with the Labor Law that do address the issue of drug testing. These laws state that the employer must have a written policy available to every employee. Let us help you with your "Drug Free Workplace Policy", or if you already have one in place, let us help you take the steps necessary to establish that your company is committed to a being a drug and alcohol-free workplace.
We provide collection services 24x7 to our clients through our many collection sites availible. Just contact us for a nearby site already set up, or if you need a new site, just email us and we will set up a site that is closest and most convienent for your needs.
We work with most of the major SAMHSA-certified laboratories, and if we are not currently set up with the lab you currently use and would like to continue to use, we will happily set up with that lab.

Every person (with the exception of identical twins) has a unique genetic code identified by DNA (DeoxyriboNucleic Acid) found in each cell in the body. Genes come in different forms and sizes and are referred to as "alleles". For each gene location, every person has two different sized alleles, one inherited from the mother, and one inherited from the biological father. When the alledged father's allele sizes do NOT match the child's on at least three differnt genes, the paternity test proves conclusively that the tested man is NOT the biological father. When the tested man's alleles match all of the child's genes, the probability of paternity is determined. We work with GENTITICA DNA LABORATORIES, INC., the first fully accredited DNA Laboratory to guarantee the accuracy of test results. There are 'over the counter' DNA tests available to the public now, but what they don't want you to know is that although it seems cheaper, you still have to pay the 'lab' fee which can be quite costly, and most importantly, because it is not being collected by a trained DNA collector, DNA is easily transfered, and therefore the tests are not accurate and will not be accepted in a court of law. Genetica's results are to accuracy greater than 99.9%, making them the highest accuracy of any laboratory in the industry!
EXTENDED TESTING AVAILABLE!!
We are pleased to be working with Med Tox Laboratories to offer extended testing including:
ETG TESTING-alcohol testing detectable in urine for over 80 hours after the ingestion of alcohol.
GHB TESTING-(Gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid) testing is being used recreationally as a euphoriant at "rave" type parties. GHB is typically associated with sexual assault or as a "date rape" drug due to its severe hypnotic and sedative effect at higher doses.
STERIOD TESTING-ideal for sports organizations, colleges and high school. RTL utilizes the most sophisticted, sensitive and specific equipment and technology available to confirm and quantitate steriods and diuretics.
