Information on Drug and Alcohol Usage While on Supervision
The Northern District of Ohio has a Zero Tolerance Policy in effect relative to illicit drug use for all offenders. Any instance of illegal drug use is reported to the jurisdictional authority (Court, U.S. Parole Commission).
Illegal drug use may jeopardize your status. Use of drugs that are not prescribed could result in incarceration.
Random urine screens may be collected from offenders during the term of supervision.
It is required that probation officers conduct a minimum of one urine screen a year in all supervision cases.
Urine screens will be conducted where there is a suspicion of illicit drug use or alcohol abuse.
Breath alcohol screening tests may also be conducted along with urine screening.
