Our Services


DOT Program Management

SECON offers a wide array of tools to address the unique needs of clients with employees regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT). SECON offers Policy Development, Medical Review Officer, and Random Selection to ensure all requirements of DOT are met.

Internet Reporting

Confidentiality regarding employee drug and/or alcohol test results is the employers’ responsibility. DrugScreen.com provides instant secure results retrievable from anywhere in the world.

On-Site and Contract Collections

SECON teams have provided collection services for a varied client base since 1982. This includes specimen collection, alcohol testing, and baggage searches.

Background Checks

SECON has partnered with a background screening company whose values mimic our own. We can provide accurate and timely information so you can avoid heedless hiring decisions.

Collection Site DOT Compliance Auditing

If you are an employer operating a DOT regulated drug and alcohol program, you are ultimately responsible for ensuring that all aspects of your testing program comply with DOT regulations. Have you fallen victim to a collection site that is unwilling or unable to follow the regulations?

International Drug Screening

SECON Global Services, through strategic partnerships with the world’s leading collection and laboratory providers, including the Alere group of companies, is able to provide a true one source for all international drug screening requirements.

K2 - Spice - Synthetic Marijuana Screening

SECON now offers the most economical, yet most improved screening tool for the detection of over 30 different synthetic cannabinoid compounds. Our internal lab can offer a screening result with a turn-around of 24 hours or less.

DNA Testing

SECON has partnered with a reputable DNA laboratory to offer state of the art DNA testing. All that is necessary is a swab of the check from the supposed parent and from the child.

Frequently Asked Questions


How long does it take to get a negative drug test result?

Approximately 24 to 48 hours.

What does a dilute result mean?

A dilute specimen is a urine specimen that has a greater concentration of water than that of a normal urine specimen. Dilute specimens are generally caused by oral hydration of fluids and are usually more clear in appearance that normal urine. It is possible that a specimen could be dilute due to inadvertent over-hydration, several medications taken by the donor or existing medical conditions. However, it is also possible that the donor has intentionally over-hydrated, or water-loaded, to avoid the detection of presence of drugs in the specimen.

What is the difference between initial screening and confirmation testing at the lab?

The initial screening process at the lab separates the negative from non negative results. GCMS testing is an extremely accurate test that is completed on non negative results which provides quantitative results for the presence of a specific drug or drug metabolite.

Why are some people randomly tested more than once?

"Is the boss singling me out? I just did a random last month? Joe, never gets tested? I don’t think this thing is random at all!"

Those are not uncommon concerns among some safety-sensitive employees, and many employers have been challenged in court to demonstrate that their programs are truly random. The reality is that in a truly random selection process, a high probability exists that some employees will be selected several times while others may never be selected. Why? Because after each selection, the employee’s name is returned to the same pool, and he or she becomes just as likely as anyone else to be selected next time.

What are the retention times for drugs?

1 hour per unit/drink
2 - 6 days
3 - 8 days
2 - 14 days
Usually 2 - 4 weeks; however, single use may be undetectable after 5 days
3 - 7 days

About Secon


SECON was established and incorporated in 1981 as a canine search company. Upon the enactment of federal Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, SECON began offering on-site drug testing collections, on-site breath alcohol testing, and detector dog team searches to existing clients. Since that time, SECON has grown into a fully integrated provider of comprehensive drug testing and specimen collection services for criminal justice, government, and professional service clients.

SECON maintains two locations with Lafayette, Louisiana as it's headquarter. An additional service center is located in Houma, Louisiana. From these sites, the company administers a network of services that include more than 300,000 annual collections and/or test specimens for a large variety of public and private clients.

SECON’s client base covers a wide range of industries and services including oil & gas, manufacturing, construction, criminal justice, and transportation. SECON also provides services to all levels of government (local, state, and federal). We provide services nationwide and can tailor a program to meet your needs.

SECON personnel have provided collection services for national and international clients since 1982. On the SECON staff are two C-SAPA’s (Certified Substance Abuse Program Administrator), of which there are less than 150 nationally. Our staff members make up over 200 years of working in the drug and alcohol testing industry.

When looking for a reputable drug testing company – remember – SECON for your drug testing needs.
