Our Approach

Our Goal

Our goal is to serve and provide employers a simple and affordable alternative to sending their employees to an off-site drug testing/collection location by coming to their job-site. This alternative increases productivity, returns employees to their jobs with less time lost, and saves the company money. There isn't a need for supervisors to transport employees to off-site clinics when a Post-Accident or Reasonable Suspicion requires a test. Our goal is to be a reliable alternative and to accommodate the employer with their testing needs 24/7

Our Story

Our Story

Prior to moving to Mountain Home, AR, Rick and Judy's permanent residence was located in Fort Smith, AR. Their previous occupation was opening, marketing, and managing newly built retirement communities for a major nationwide family owned company. Their motivation for building a new career as certified mobile drug and alcohol screening/collection agents was founded on their experience of having to send their employees to off-site collection sites. This inconvenience inspired the thoughts and beginnings for Protocol Drug and Alcohol Testing which is an established 24/7 mobile testing service. Rick and Judy are members and Ambassadors of the Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce. Rick is currently President of the Ambassadors for 2017. They are both members of the local chapter of the Lions Club. Rick is currently First Vice President and chairs the Sight Care Committee. Judy is chair for Children's Vision Screening. Judy also sits on the board for Kindness, Inc. Both are members of the Mountain Home Historical Society. Their strengths lie in their desire and willingness to serve their Clients, their Church, and their Community.
