Many workplaces require you to pass a drug test these days before they'll hire you.

In some places, that could mean making a trip to the hospital.

If you need to get a drug test quickly in Paintsville, you're now in luck.

“It seems the general consensus that's it's a much needed service for this area,” Sandra Dingus said.

Officials say before this new drug testing center opened you might have had to go outside the county for a test.

“This is the closest facility besides the hospital and so it is really a positive thing,” Fran Jarrell said.

The drug center of the bluegrass had a ribbon cutting ceremony Monday and many came out to show support for the new facility that is located on main street.

“We need places, things like this in the community with so many drug problems we need to start erasing the drug problem and this may be one avenue,” Pastor Wesley Stedtefeld said.

Tthe new facility also created several new jobs in Paintsville.

The Drug Center of the Bluegrass can also do DNA and paternity tests.
