Our model of best practice combines detailed forensic analysis with substance abuse test results.
FTS’ approach to drug and alcohol testing is fundamentally different to our competitors as we report all findings, even if traces of drugs and/or alcohol are found at a low level. In addition, we undertake a forensic investigation in every case, which involves us completing a detailed client questionnaire about all factors that could influence our findings.
We have revolutionised the testing process, so that much of the drug and / or alcohol abuse that presently goes undetected, including the growing number of new synthetic drugs such as synthetic cannabinoids like ”spice”, can now be detected and reported for all cases.
Our approach to drug and alcohol testing is fundamentally unique. This is because our analysis consists of a detailed forensic investigation, and not just a simple ‘positive’ or ‘negative’ result.
FTS’ results, interpretations and expert reports are designed specifically to provide a standard of proof and accuracy that is essential in the field of Family Law. Our experts carefully analyse each individual case, along with all contextual information, which includes but is not limited to, critical factors such as donor hair colour, passive exposure risk, hair treatment and prescribed medications.
We report on ALL findings, not just the presence of compounds above or below the Society of Hair Testing cut-off levels, enabling us to provide the most comprehensive expert reports in the industry, as well as the only reports that provide the necessary burden of proof for the family court.
