You want to live alcohol and drug-free and prove this to your family, your employer, in court, for an upcoming MPA or simply for yourself? The abstinence checks of TÜV Hessen support you in this.

Alcohol abstinence check

Ethyl glucuronide (EtG), a degradation product of alcohol, is measured in your urine or your hair to detect alcohol abstinence. Proof of abstinence from urine is provided by several urine deliveries which happen unannounced within the period of time you have ordered. By means of a hair analysis, the absence of alcohol can be proven retroactively over a period of up to 3 months, provided that you have the necessary hair length (at least 3 cm) and your hair is in its natural state. If no EtG is found in the sample material in the respective procedure, this is a clear indication of your abstinent way of life and you receive the technically recognized proof of your alcohol renunciation in the selected period - also as proof for the MPA.

 

Controlled handling of alcohol

Have you recognised your problematic alcohol consumption and changed your drinking behaviour accordingly? The method of hair analysis can also be used to detect the controlled - i.e. socially and physically justifiable - consumption of alcohol.

 

Drug screening

Proof of freedom from drugs can also be provided by means of a hair and/or urine analysis. Proof of abstinence from urine is also provided by several, for you unforeseeable urine deliveries within the period you have ordered. By means of a hair analysis, the absence of drugs can be proven retroactively over a period of up to 6 months, provided you have the necessary hair length (at least 6 cm) and your hair is in its natural state. If no corresponding active substances or metabolic products are found in the sample material in the respective procedure, this is a clear indication of your abstinent way of life and you receive the technically recognized proof of your drug renunciation in the selected period - naturally also here as proof for the MPA.

Although the "abstinence check" is an important component for a successful MPU, it is generally not sufficient. You should also have dealt intensively with your problematic behaviour, which led to the revocation of your driving licence or to official doubts about your suitability to drive - if necessary, you should not shy away from the use of technical support.
