If you suspect someone you love is using the process of administering random drug testing can create unwanted conflict between you and them. A third party can alleviate this problem. At Master Center for Addiction Medicine, our process is streamlined and cost-effective. Previously the options for addiction treatment programs have been limited to home testing or large corporate labs that often have cumbersome bureaucratic procedures and long wait times. The cost of those services can be substantial. Our protocol is efficient and not cost-prohibitive.
Drug and Alcohol Testing as a Precaution
Several of our clients find the testing as a positive reinforcement of the hard work in recovery and sincerely want to participate. In the case of a positive test, we can have a verification test performed. Additional services for addiction recovery support are available if the need arises.
The Master Center for Addiction Medicine offers the following services for drug and alcohol testing:
Randomized Drug and Alcohol Screening
The Master Center is pleased to provide random drug testing to families, counselors, businesses, and schools for the Richmond, Virginia, area. These tests are completely confidential, and the results can be provided to parents, counselors, employers, or any designated person. This valuable service provides accountability for people recovering from addiction while avoiding the conflict often associated with a loved one or employer conducting testing. The tests are randomized. The client is notified the morning of the test and asked to stop in the office before the end of the business day. The process is efficient, with no long waits for testing. Our office is easily accessible from the metropolitan Richmond area.
Urinalysis as Court-Supervised Probation
Attorneys can use this service for clients awaiting trial for drug or alcohol charges. Proof that their client is abstinent and working on recovery can positively influence sentencing for drug-related crimes or driving under the influence cases. We also offer comprehensive additional treatment services and expert witness testimony on behalf of clients.
The Master Center also offers assistance to people with past criminal charges. The Drug Treatment Court Program is not only a valuable treatment option. Still, it can be an invaluable tool in countering post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, and other mental health issues caused by the stress of incarceration. This treatment program prepares addicts for life outside their addiction to be productive citizens who are no longer defined by their drug problems. It provides them with tools to obtain employment, live independently, avoid relapse, and maintain family relationships while holding offenders accountable.
Employee Drug Testing Services
Employers will appreciate the convenience of our random drug testing program. The Master Center can test one employee randomly or implement drug testing for an entire office. Pre-employment drug screening is also available. Additional services for corporations are available as well. If one of your employees shows a positive drug screen, we can design a treatment plan to adhere to as their recovery begins. In most cases, the employee’s job will be protected. Our long-standing relationships with many major businesses in our area allow us to accommodate their needs while remaining confidential.
Court-Supervised Drug Testing is also available 24 hours a day at our facility in Richmond, Virginia. Home drug testing kits can give you peace of mind, so please feel free to contact us today about our drug and alcohol testing services.
Diagnostic Tests for Students
Schools often look for drug screening solutions for students who have violated student conduct policies. We are happy to develop a confidential drug testing program to help monitor students who have had addiction issues or are uncompliant with their recovery program. Schools no longer have to resort to expulsion for an alcohol or drug offense. Offering a randomized drug testing program for teens can retain students and offer them treatment solutions instead of punishment.
