About the State of North Dakota

North Dakota, also known as the Peace Garden state, is located in the Northern region of the U.S. and borders Canada. This farm state is one of the most rural of all the states with farms covering over 90% of its land. However, it has recently become an oil drilling site with it housing one of the largest contiguous deposits in the U.S. for oil and natural gas. In fact, before 2004 only 2 percent of oil and gas production made up the state’s economy, but by 2014 it was reaching almost 16 percent.

North Dakota has several points of interest that attract tourism each year which include 20 state parks, deer hunting and pike fishing. Not to mention, it has some of the most influential historic sites such as the Knife River Indian Villages, North Dakota Heritage Center and State Museum and Chateau De Mores State Historic site to name a few.

State of North Dakota Drug Testing News

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, North Dakota had at least 54 drug overdose death, with a rate of 7.6 deaths per 100,000 persons. Although this is half of the national average, 13.3 deaths per 100,000 persons, it is still rising at an alarming rate compared to 2014 when the rate was only 4.5 deaths per 100,000 persons.

In an attempt to aide in the decrease of fatal deaths in relation to overdoses, North Dakota created a prevention campaign known as the Recovery Reinvented Program in 2017, according to AP News. This program distributes naloxone – a medication that counter effects opioid effects – to prevent overdoses. As of 2019, the Senate passed a bill to help expand the Recovery Reinvented Program with a $4.5million grant.

FAQ's About Drug Testing in North Dakota

Drug detection factors

The length of time that a drug is detectable in the system depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • the type of test
  • dose
  • tolerance
  • potency
  • metabolism
  • the existence of medical conditions

Drug detection times

Please use these figures as a guide only:

  • Alcohol: 3-5 days in urine, 10-12 hours in blood
  • Amphetamines: 1-3 days in urine and around 12 hours in blood
  • Barbiturates: 2-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Benzodiazepines: 3-6 weeks in urine and 2-3 days in blood
  • Cannabis: 7-30 days in urine and up to 2 weeks in blood
  • Cocaine: 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Codeine: 1 day in urine and up to 12 hours in blood
  • Heroin: 3-4 days in urine and up to 12 hours in blood
  • LSD: 1-3 days in urine and up to 2-3 hours in blood
  • MDMA (ecstasy): 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Methamphetamine (crystal meth): 3-6 days in urine and 24 – 72 hours in blood
  • Methadone: 3-4 days in urine and 24-36 hours in blood
  • Morphine: 2-3 days in urine and 6-8 hours in blood

Drug detection in hair

Drugs or their metabolites may be detectable in hair. Hair grows at a rate of approximately 1cm per month so depending on the length of hair it may be possible to determine drug use over recent months.

A urine drug test, also known as a urine drug screen or a UDS, is a painless test. It analyzes your urine for the presence of certain illegal drugs and prescription medications. The urine drug test usually screens for:

  • amphetamines
  • methamphetamines
  • benzodiazepines
  • barbiturates
  • marijuana
  • cocaine
  • PCP
  • methadone
  • opioids (narcotics)

Alcohol can also be included in screening tests, but it’s usually detected through breath tests rather than urine screens.

A urine drug test can help a doctor detect potential substance abuse problems. After a drug test identifies drugs you may be misusing, doctors can help you start a treatment plan. Taking urine drug tests throughout substance abuse treatment helps to ensure that the plan is working and that you’re no longer taking drugs.

Cannabis: 7-30 days in urine and up to 2 weeks in blood.

Cocaine: 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood.

Codeine: 1 day in urine and up to 12 hours in blood.

Heroin:3-4 days in urine and up to 12 hours in blood.

It is broken down and excreted through your urine, making it detectable with urine drug testing for up to five days. Hair drug testing timelines have windows of up to 90 days.

Negative results are usually received within 24 hours; however, a positive screen will require further testing that may take a few days up to one week. If the initial screen is negative, a medical review officer (MRO) will typically contact the employer with the results.

If your urine is being tested only for a urinalysis, you can eat and drink normally before the test. If you‘re having other tests at the same time, you may need to fast for a certain amount of time before the test.
