A one-year pilot program by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services designed to catch welfare recipients using illegal drugs has come up empty handed.


The MDHHS conducted suspicion-based screenings between October 2015 and September 2016 in Allegan, Clinton, and Marquette counties with no welfare recipients found to be using illegal drugs.


One person was found by a clinician who had a reasonable suspicion of use of a controlled substance but that person was taken off the welfare rolls for an unrelated reason.
