First, do you have a medical diagnosis of paruresis? If not, then do not try to claim that as a reason for not being able to provide a drug screen, as PO's get that excuse all the time. In VA, it doesn't fly at all with the Courts. We use urine samples, and if the offender chooses to have themselves tested another way, then they must pay for it . However, that is usually futile since the Court take our drugs screens into consideratioon, not ones that offender's have done, as they get to choose when to have the test done, so they tend to only have tests done when they know they will be clean. Ours are random, so they are a true measure of drug use.
