Can drug or alcohol consumption affect the DNA test results?

No, drug or alcohol consumption does not affect the DNA test results.

A person’s DNA when used in paternity testing and with mouth swabs, does not change or effect the results of such test.

The only time the results can be affected is if a person had a blood transfusion or bone marrow transplant which would contain the donors DNA and a mixture of DNA information would lead to affected results and having to re-do the DNA collection and causing delays.
