ALPHARETTA, Ga./PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --, the background screening news and information portal for Human Resources professionals and Hiring Managers, has published an informative new guide on 'How to Select a Drug & Alcohol Screening Provider' to help employers select the right drug screening provider to meet their hiring needs at a time when drug use is on the increase.

The 'How to Select a Drug & Alcohol Screening Provider' guide was written specifically to help employers to select a drug testing provider who can meet their company's needs and to guide them in defining a successful program. Nina French, Managing Partner, Current Consulting Group, captures the intent of the Guide very well when she states, "Building a house relies on a good architect, a great contractor and excellent communication with the owner. Selecting the wrong vendors can be both expensive and frustrating. Likewise, a great substance abuse testing program takes great design, implementation and ongoing support. Understanding and translating your program design is key to building a successful partnership and selecting the right partner."

This is especially true at a time when, according to a recent analysis of industry-specific data by Quest Diagnostics, one third of U.S. industry sectors experienced year-over-year double-digit increases in workforce drug positivity between 2015 and 2018. Barry Sample, PhD, senior director, science and technology, Quest Diagnostics recently stated that "Our longitudinal examination of drug positivity data suggests drug use by the nation's workforce is growing across a broad swath of industries."
