with first Texas location; Company plans more than five new drug testing franchise
locations for the Metroplex.
FORT WORTH, Texas (September 2011) – A new business in town is snuffing out substance abuse to keep the local community safe and save companies millions of dollars in workman’s compensation claims.
Conspire!, a national provider of affordable, convenient and reliable drug and alcohol testing services
, today announced it has opened its newest location at 3533 NW Loop 820 in Fort Worth, Texas. Owned by local resident Dave Thomas, this is the company’s first of five-plus locations planned for the Metroplex and 80 locations planned for Texas.
“We are joining forces with America’s War on Drugs by providing high-quality, reliable drug testing services to keep our community safe,” said Thomas. “Having worked in various commercial jobs for nearly 15 years, I am very familiar with the testing process and have witnessed firsthand the positive impact it can have on an employees’ safety as well as a company’s bottom line. With my new Conspire! office, I now have the opportunity to take control of my financial future while educating and supporting the local community with effective drug and alcohol testing services
Family-owned and operated, the Fort Worth Conspire! location combines cutting-edge screening technology with the latest in compliance, education and enforcement in the drug screening industry. Its services produce fast, accurate results that are delivered with compassion and care. Offering a total testing solution for its clients across the nation, Conspire’s! services include pre-employment testing, background checks, random drug screening, drug and alcohol awareness training, compliance manuals and support, as well as onsite drug testing available 24/7, certified collectors, DHHS/SAMHSA Laboratory Service, certified MRO services and much more.
During the past 12 months, the Metroplex region topped the nation’s job growth with more than 134,000 added,* demonstrating a powerful need for drug and alcohol testing services and compliance polices. A survey conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) stated that drug-using employees are 2.2 times more likely to request early dismissal or time off, 2.5 times more likely to have absences of eight days or more, three times more likely to be late for work, 3.6 times more likely to be involved in a workplace accident and five times more likely to file a workers’ compensation claim.
Prevalence of drugs in America’s educational institutions is also rampant, as 76 percent of high-school students claim that drugs are kept, used or sold on school grounds. As a result, schools have initiated student testing, backed by the federal government’s recent financial grant. Conspire! has set out to protect today’s youth by taking a strong stand against drugs as it works with school officials to implement a full-range of testing services that includes onsite drug testing, urine or saliva testing, rapid tests, random testing, and home test kits, as well as education.
“The proof is in the numbers,” added Thomas. “My new Conspire! office allows me to help get individuals’ lives back on track while educating and supporting businesses through strategic implementation of drug compliance policies in the workplace. We go beyond the average drug test, and are truly committed to making a difference by using testing to deter substance abuse, identify opportunities for intervention and encourage overall health and safety for all.”
Most recently a lead driver with a beverage company in Florida, Thomas spent the past six years consistently noticing were improvements could be made to the company’s drug and alcohol compliancy and regulations. Ready to turn to a new chapter in his career, Thomas moved to Texas and began looking at various franchise opportunities. Having seen the direct effect alcohol and drugs have on a business’ performance, Thomas knew that opening his own Conspire! office would be a perfect fit for the Fort Worth area.
The new Fort Worth location is part of Conspire’s! national growth plan, which calls for more than 200 locations to open throughout the United States in the next 24-36 months in prime markets. Areas of growth include Fort Worth, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Houston, and other select markets across the nation.
Lynette Crow founded Conspire! in 2003 to meet the testing needs of local businesses, which eventually inspired her to expand the business in a way that would impact an entire society. Crow has established herself as an expert in the industry and is routinely called upon as a resource for her community. Recognized as an expert in matters related to business ethics and corporate compliance, Crow maintains certification in OSHA, HIPPA and is a member of the National Association of Drug Court Professionals, the Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association and is a board member for the Third Party Administration Consortium. Currently, there are two Conspire! offices in operation in Colorado and one in Fort Worth, TX, with additional locations planned for San Diego, CA and Rochester, NY. Company plans call for more than 200 locations to open during the next two to three years across the nation.
