This paper reports on research that replicated a study that showed hair analysis to detect seven times as much cocaine use as was detected by urinalysis. Abstract The target population consisted of juvenile detainees, between 14 and 18 years old, who were located at two sites: Cleveland, Ohio ( male detainees), and St.

Petersburg, Fla., ( male and female detainees). Hair assays and urinalysis results for juvenile drug offenders. [Washington, D.C.]: U.S. Dept.

of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, National Institute of Justice, [] (OCoLC)   Data from juveniles in detention facilities in Cleveland and Pinellas County (Fla.) formed the basis of an analysis of the use of hair analysis, urinalysis, and survey data collected in personal interviews to determine the prevalence of drug use among these arrestees.

Thus, hair test results generally are negative or positive for drug use within the 90 days prior to hair collection in the same way that urine tests are negative or positive for drug use in the days prior to urine col- lection.

Each client was also urine tested at intake, and was assigned to a random urinalysis screening pool. The juveniles, additionally, must agree as a condition of diversion that they can be tested by any technique on demand by their caseworker.

Using confirmation results, the hair drug testing detection rate for each drug (marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and opiates) was compared to the day self-report use.

We used McNemar's test for change of state (Conover, ) to test if the ratio between the two assessments was significantly different from one.

PDF NCJRS Abstract. Covering a wide range of research currently being done in drug analysis, Drug Testing Technology: Assessment of Field Applications compares and evaluates various methods used to determine abused drugs taken by individuals, and their application in various programs and contexts.

Controversies associated with various methods, including urine analysis and hair. This paper reports select findings of a research project designed to estimate drug use prevalence in a youthful offender population using hair analysis as well as urine testing and interviewing.

The project was carried out in Cleveland, Ohio, and Pinellas County, by: Conducted interviews, urinalysis, and hair assay with 88 juvenile arrestees (mean age 16 yrs) over a 2-mo period. Hair assay revealed that 50 Ss had used cocaine; concentration levels were. findings of an earlier study1 that had examined drug use among juvenile offenders using self reports, urinalysis, and hair assays.

Results of a urine test show the presence or absence of specific drugs or drug metabolites in the urine.

Metabolites are drug residues that remain in the system for some time after the effects of the drug have worn off. A positive urine test does not necessarily mean the subject was under the influence of drugs at the time of the test.Persons charged with drug distribution offenses were not eligible.

In order to qualify for diversion, persons had to admit guilt regarding the acts for which they were arrested. The program was entirely voluntary. One of the unique aspects of this program was its aggressive use of drug testing, including urinalysis and hair analysis.OPUS is designed to provide insight into emerging drug trends among the juvenile offender population.
