Chapter 5 Nonjudicial Punishment - 14134_105
medical     purpose     may   be  used   to  refer    a member    to  a Department of    Defense (DOD) treatment and rehabilitation program,    to   take   appropriate disciplinary action,    and   to   establi  sh  the   basi .s for   a  separa characterization in    a  separation     proceeding. tion    and The   results     of  a  command-directed/fitness-for-duty urinalysis may  not   be  used  against    the   member   for  any disciplinary purposes, not on the issue of characterization of   service    in    separation proceedings, except    when    used   for   impeachment or  rebuttal in   any proceeding     that     evidence    of  drug    abuse   has   been   first introduced by  the   member.   In   addition, positive    results obtained from     a   command-directed fitness-for-duty urinalysis may  not  be  used  as a  basis  for  vacation    of  the suspension     of  execution of  punishment imposed   under Article 15,  UCMJ, or   a  result of  court-martial. Such result    may,  however,     serve  as the   basis   for  referral     of  a member  to  a  DOD   treatment     and  rehabilitation’program and  as  a basis  for   administrative separation. What    administrative or   disciplinary action    can   be taken against service members identified as   drug abusers through service-directed urinalysis testing varies, depending upon    which CNO-designated unit was  tested.   The   only   constant    is  that    all   service-directed testing    may  be considered   as the  basis  for  administrative separation. THE COLLECTION PROCESS The  weakest   link    in   the   urinalysis program   chain   is in     the area     of   collection and     custody procedures. Commands   should   conduct   every   urinalysis with    the   full expectation that     administrative or   disciplinary action might    result.    The   use  of  chiefs   and  officers   as  observers and   unit coordinators is   strongly encouraged. Strict adherence to   direct observation policy during urine collection to prevent substitution, dilution, or adulteration is   an   absolute necessity. Mail samples immediately after    collection     to  reduce   the   possibility of tampering. Make   sure   all   documentation and   labels   are legible    and   complete.    Special   attention should    be  given to  the  ledger   and  chain   of  custody   to  make  sure  they   are all    accurate,   complete,   and   legible.    Additional guidance is   provided in    OPNAVINST 53530.4B. The   information that    has   been  presented    to  you   in this     chapter is   complex and    difficult. You    must     be knowledgeable, however,     of  the   importance of  properly advising accused’s of  their    rights,     the   types   of  and   the requirements for  conducting    a lawful     search  and  seizure, and   drug   abuse  detection.    This    chapter   has  given   you   a basic   understanding of  these   issues. 4-25
