I will tell you and you can choose to believe what I type or not because honestly its your ass not mine but I have first hand knowledge of this from not your side of the fence..............
ADS can and will on their discretion screen your urine for alcohol. They can choose to do so for different reasons. If its your drug of choice, if you seem drunk but your not blowing numbers, they switch it up to throw everyone off, etc. It is up to the discretion of your counselor and his/her feeling on whether they think you are staying sober or not. That said, this also means that there may be many times they don't check your urine for alcohol. They will breathalyze you at intake and for every group meeting you are asked to attend. ALSO, yes ADS sends their urine samples to the Fairfax lab for testing and then receive the results in about 2 days BUT all sites are stocked with instant tests as well and those are a stick that you don't choose what is being tested, it tests for everything. My opinion is it's not worth it to drink how ever many days before you go in just in case but then again if you think its ok to chance being violated and possible jail time, then maybe you need those classes anyway. And for the person who asked about THC, YES GUARANTEED ADS will test you for THC at your assessment, doesn't matter why your there!
ASAP is different than ADS completely. Not even run by the county, its a state funded program. Their intake process and then their classes are also done differently. Again it depends on why you are there and how much your counselor has time to put into your case with the HUGE caseloads they carry.
Did I miss anyone's question?
