Most EtG testing is sent to a lab due to instruments required. Unlike breathalyzer that uses portable instruments EtG requires large analyzers. Thought perhaps the center was in a hospital with access to the equipment.
As noted, you will in all likelihood pass the test but that isn't the main problem before you. Glad to hear that you're taking action to address the larger problem.
Keep in touch.
