About Us

History of Drug Testing Clinics

Launched in 2010, Drug Testing Clinics are part of Crystal Health Group. They were part of the DNA Clinics set up back in 2005. As a result, the transition to providing drug testing services was an easy one.
The same ethos was behind the decision to start providing the drug testing service. A face to face sample collection service providing advice and support. Coupled with guidance from science degree educated Clinical Advisors. Because of this, our founder believes we offer something different than other providers.
