I was going over our site’s search hits and found that many people are wondering about being given a “color’ by CPS for drug testing. I can tell you about this.
When I had a color and called the 800 number every single day for two years I found that you color is only called 2 times per month. THAT’S ALL. No more, no less. Once your color has been called 2 times in the same month, you can count on not testing again until the 1st of the next month. However, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS COULD CHANGE AT ANY TIME so don’t stop calling that number and DON’T USE DRUGS because you know this, but you could use it to take long weekend away or just going out of town without having to worry about testing or missing a test. Also, no colors are called on the weekend in Riverside County. This is not for other program testing just the CPS assigned color testing. The assigned colors are primary colors, red, blue, black, yellow, brown, green, and maybe purple and pink. No testing days always call the odd colors like aqua, teal, mint, rose, lavender, but you’ll figure it out by just writing down the colors each day on a calendar. This daily journal is also helpful to keep yourself from forgetting to call.
BEWARE**** WHEN CPS WANTS YOU TO SUBMIT TO A HAIR FOLLICLE TEST***BEWARE
THEY CAN AND WILL FAKE THE RESULTS IF THEY WANT TO. Usually, they do this when they have no other evidence. So if they got nothing on you and they ask you to do a hair follicle, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, MAKE SURE THAT YOU PAY FOR YOUR OWN AT THE SAME TIME and use your first name initial, middle name and last name for the one you pay for this way the lab won’t confuse them or tell CDT that you are doing your own. If they end of faking it, you will have absolute proof and please get that to a lawyer ASAP.
