A: If DCF does not have a court order requiring the drug test, DCF can ask you to take a drug test but cannot make you take a test. However, if you refuse testing and there is information that they think indicates that your use or possession of drugs endangers your child, DCF might take legal action to remove your child and restrict your access to your child. If that occurs, you'll immediately need an attorney, and if you cannot afford a private attorney, one will be appointed for you.
