What if my teen refuses to provide a sample?

Refusing to test is the same as testing positive and will be documented as such.

There are few situations that would be considered a refusal:

  • Failure to report for testing.
  • Failure to provide a sample.
  • Failure to cooperate with the testing process.
  • Having a result that is reported as substituted, adulterated, or not consistent with human urine.

If the testing agent has reason to suspect that the teen is trying to negate the testing process, the actions will be documented and the result will be marked as a refusal which is the same as testing positive.
