We’re here to help.
We are dedicated to providing health care professionals with accurate, timely urine drug screening confirmation to help guide early therapy and improve the lives of their patients. It is well known that our national epidemic of prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing problem in America. These problems can start early in a patient’s life and most report borrowing medications from friends or family members.
Drug screening, or tox screening, is no longer reserved just for pain management physicians but family practice, psychiatry, and addiction specialists. It is becoming increasingly important to these and other physicians to monitor their patients so that appropriate changes, referrals, and interventions are implemented.
These facts are leading to a growing percentage of family practice physicians who are using urine drug testing as part of their controlled substance treatment protocol. Proper toxicology testing can help doctors and patients alike.
What is toxicology?
Clinical toxicology testing is the measurement and interpretation of concentrations of drugs and other toxic substances in human biological fluids for the purpose of patient care. This test may be necessary when multiple drug ingestion is involved, as effects of one drug may mask the clinical signs and symptoms of the effects of other drugs. Center for Genetic Research test results provide information to your healthcare provider who can make a clinical diagnosis and provide therapy as needed.
