Addiction & Substance Abuse Treatment

Sterling’s toxicology testing services include testing for clients managing substance abuse and addiction. Treatment testing confirms that individuals are compliant with the guidelines set forth by their treatment programs and includes prescription drug monitoring when medication is used to aid in recovery. 

Individuals undergoing this type of testing include those who seek treatment for their addiction and those who are forced into sobriety through a court order. Clients include substance abuse treatment centers, in-patient and out-patient facilities, drug counselors, methadone clinics, private practice physicians and agents of the court.

Capabilities in Treatment and Addiction Testing

Sterling knows treatment testing. We were one of the first toxicology labs to enter the addiction testing space and identify designer drugs like synthetic marijuana (K2/Spice) and bath salts while they went undetected by standard drug screens. Our state-of-the-art equipment can pinpoint illicit drugs and prescription medications in addition to new substances as they arrive on the market.

Service offerings include point-of-care testing for clients who need a compliance snapshot right in the office and traditional screen and confirmation testing at one of our labs. We maintain certifications with multiple accrediting bodies including the College of American Pathologists (CAP) as a sign of our commitment to excellence.
