ARCpoint Labs of Fort Myers announced an expansion of its Employer & Workplace Drug & Alcohol Testing Programs to service federal agencies including pilots and aviation workers (FAA); commercial drivers (DOT); and the Coast Guard.

ARCpoint Labs provides comprehensive workplace drug & alcohol testing services from their Fort Myers, Florida lab as well as on-site services to businesses in Fort Myers and surrounding communities including the Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres, Naples, and Bonita Springs.

"Drug and alcohol abuse is reaching epidemic levels in America and absolutely influences our workplace productivity, safety and competitiveness," states Eric Graham, President at ARCpoint Labs of Fort Myers. He continues, "We opened this testing facility to empower area businesses and give them a solid, comprehensive option when dealing with employment drug and substance abuse."

A study published in 2007 revealed that 12.3 million substance abusers were employed full-time, with another 40 million employees categorized as heavy binge drinkers. Smaller businesses tend to suffer even greater productivity losses with the heaviest substance abuse among businesses reporting unknowingly employing a current illicit drug user and/or a heavy drinker in 2007. (90% of businesses with less than 500 employees report some form of substance abuse).

ARCpoint Labs of Fort Myers offers a wide range of testing and diagnostic services including a revolutionary new allergy blood test that can identify most food allergens without the painful prick test. The new ALCAT Test for food intolerances provide test results that are delivered to patients complete with an eating plan to help mitigate food issues.
