Drug of abuse testing is based on diagnosing drug addiction, also called substance use disorder, requiring a thorough evaluation and often includes an assessment by a psychiatrist, a psychologist, or a licensed alcohol and drug counselor.

The testing technologies consist of immunoassay technique and chromatography technique, used for both onsite as well as laboratory testing.
