First Choice Drug Testing

First Choice is a full-service third-party administrator and we offer every conceivable lab test at our southwest Little Rock testing center, as well as pre-employment background checks and physicals. We love partnering with small businesses to keep drugs and alcohol out of the workplace, and no business is ever too small to institute a drug testing program! We also offer oral fluid testing services, which is an excellent alternative to urinalysis.

We offer conventional urine testing during our normal business hours (Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CDT), and no appointment is ever necessary. Our team members are all committed to professionalism and legendary service, and we offer the quickest possible turnaround time on reporting. We also keep a Medical Review Officer (MRO) on staff to verify and interpret all lab test results. Many of our clients prefer oral fluid testing for the following reasons:

Observed, tamper-resistant specimen collection—A lot can happen between your workplace and our lab, but oral testing enables you to collect a sample onsite under direct supervision. Oral fluid collection also helps to eliminate gender-based collection site issues or potential invasions of privacy.

Detection of recent drug use—Compared to urine and hair drug tests, oral fluid testing is most effective at detecting recent drug use. Drugs take time to metabolize and pass through the system in a urine test, and it takes time for hair to grow enough for the drug to be present in the hair above the scalp. Oral testing is ideal for a broad range of testing situations where the employer is interested in assessing what’s in the donor’s system when the specimen is collected.

Fast, reliable results—Sample collection typically takes approximately 5-10 minutes, and you’ll have the option to do instant or lab-based testing. We’ll help you decide which method best fits your needs. You’ll be able to screen prospective candidates and put them to work right away with instant testing, and they’ll all walk a little straighter when they know they can be selected for random or reasonable suspicion testing at any time!
