About the State of Arkansas
Arkansas, also known as the Natural State and The Land of Opportunity, is located in the southern region of the United States and is bordered by Missouri, Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Texas and Oklahoma. There are some extremely beautiful places to visit in Arkansas like Hot Springs National Park. To explain, these hot springs in the Ouachita Mountains have long been a source of interest to people living in the area, and were believed by American Indians to have healing properties. The park was established in 1921, but visitors have been coming here for much longer. The park contains lovely old bathhouses that are still in use today in various forms, including the historic Fordyce Bathhouse, which is now the park’s visitor center. There are several other attractions within the park, including an observation tower, hiking trails, and plenty of opportunity to experience the different hot springs that define this natural retreat.
If you are not too keen on being outdoors, then maybe the Arkansas Air Museum is more up your alley. On display at the Arkansas Air Museum in Fayetteville are 1920s and 30s racing planes, biplanes, and information on the history of military aviation and civilian air travel. The building that houses the museum is a 1940s-era aircraft hangar. Many of the vintage aircraft on display at the museum are in flying condition. Besides the massive airplanes that are hard to miss, permanent exhibits here include a large collection of military ground vehicles and artifacts from the Golden Age of air racing. Visitors will also find a tribute to the second-most famous American female pilot, Louise McPhetridge, who was born in the nearby city of Bentonville.
State of Arkansas Drug Testing News
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 2017, Arkansas had approximately 188 overdose deaths that directly related to opioids, this puts them at a rate of 6.5 deaths per 100,000 persons. This rate is considerably lower than the national average rate of 14.6 deaths per 100,000 persons during the same time period.
Research revealed that within these deaths 125 were due to prescription opioids, 68 were related to synthetic opioids such as fentanyl and 15 related to heroin. Although deaths involving prescription opioids have been on a decline, deaths related to synthetic opioids have been on the rise.
Research also revealed that in 2017, Arkansas providers wrote approximately 105.4 opioid prescriptions for every 100 persons, which is nearly double the national average rate of 58.7.
NAS or neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome (NOWS) may occur when a pregnant woman uses drugs such as opioids during pregnancy. A recent national study showed a fivefold increase in the incidence of NAS/NOWS between 2004 and 2014, from 1.5 cases per 1,000 hospital births to 8.0 cases per 1,000 hospital births―that is one baby born with NAS/NOWS every 15 minutes. During the same period, hospital costs for NAS/NOWS births increased from $91 million to $563 million, after adjusting for inflation.
Between 2000 and 2014, the rate of NAS/NOWS in Arkansas increased more than tenfold, from 0.3 per 1,000 hospital births to 3.2 per 1,000 hospital births (Arkansas Department of Health). The rate was four times higher among whites, including Hispanics, (4.1 per 1,000 hospital births) compared to non-whites (1.1 per 1,000 hospital births).

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:
- 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.
