About the Program

A broad overview of what attorneys need to know about the effects of alcohol as well as common street and prescription drugs on the body, interpreting drug screens, how alcohol absorption can be delayed or increased, and the connection between drug levels and impairment. There is so much to know about the science behind drug and alcohol-related impairment but this one-hour program will establish useful basic principles.

Learning objectives:

  • List the expected effects on the body from common street and prescription drugs.
  • Differentiate between drug/alcohol levels obtained from blood, urine, breath
  • Identify common false positives when interpreting drug screen results.
  • Assess the utility of drug levels for commonly encountered street and legal drugs.
  • Describe the correlation between drug and alcohol levels and level of impairment.
