0240.010.10 Testing Positive for Illegal Use of a Controlled Substance

IM-40 May 1, 2015; IM-19 February 20, 2013

The drug testing vendor notifies FSD of the drug test results. The drug test results are automatically updated on the TA Drug Testing Detail (FMNC) screen in FAMIS.

When a participant receives a positive test result, FAMIS generates an Action Notice (FA-150) to the participant notifying them of the positive test result and that a referral has been sent to Department of Mental Health (DMH). DMH will then contact the participant to assess treatment needs. The TA Drug Testing Detail (FMNC) screen displays “FAIL” in the TEST RESULTS field (they failed the drug test).
