Addiction and Treatment

Addiction Medicine & Drug Rehabilitation

Drug addiction is a complex disorder with many variables. A physician who provides any kind of addiction treatment faces obvious questions. Am I doing the right thing for my patients? Are my patients doing the right thing for themselves?

Recovery requires honesty. It is up to the clinician to help his or her patients. A comprehensive drug-testing program has become an integral component of patient care.

Comprehensive drug monitoring can be an integral component to patient care. Rely on our laboratory testing services to determine if patients are abusing or complying with their treatment program.
