Hair Alcohol Test costs and appointments

Test Costs

There are a number of different factors that influence the cost of the Hair Test, these include:

  • Whether you book an appointment at a Drug Testing Clinic or opt for the mobile collection service
  • If the Hair Alcohol test is to be performed in isolation or in combination with a Blood Alcohol test

The cost of one individual booking a Hair Alcohol test is from £395 + VAT.

The cost of one individual booking a Hair & Blood Alcohol test is from £525 + VAT.

If required, an Expert Witness Statement of the results can be produced for an additional £90 + VAT




Each Test Donor is legally identified at the appointment, hair samples are then collected and sealed to strict Chain of Custody Protocols. Samples are then processed to our UKAS 17025 and ILAC accredited laboratory, where the test is performed.

The Hair Alcohol test is performed under strict chain of custody protocols by fully trained and certified Sample Collection Officers. The test is available at some selected Crystal Health Drug Testing Clinics or via the mobile collection service.

Reports for Hair Alcohol tests are dispatched within 3 – 5 working days from receipt of your sample at our laboratory, all test reports are legally defensible; however, it is recommended that this analysis is used in conjunction with a Blood Alcohol Test. An Expert Witness Statement will also be discussed at the time of your booking.

Our Clinical Advisors will guide you through the entire booking, appointment and drug testing process and will answer any technical questions you may have.
