Join Nelson Hardiman and the American Addiction Treatment Association on November 23rd to ensure that your addiction treatment program is alert to the compliance risks and using UDT appropriately.
There are certain components of running an addiction treatment facility that might seem so straightforward, self-explanatory, and uncomplicated that you don’t give them a second thought. Urine drug testing (UDT) is likely one of those.
However, in the aftermath of fraudulent practices by a few, the climate for the many has changed. What began as a way to test patient treatment compliance has now turned into a regulatory compliance nightmare for many facilities.
The unfortunate dynamic of the proverbial “few bad apples” spoiling things for everyone else has been at work in this industry…and it’s created an atmosphere of proactive suspicion, increased scrutiny, and heightened investigations—an antagonistic atmosphere that the well-intended operators who have committed to scrupulous practices don’t deserve, but must deal with nonetheless.
In the fallout of abuse of and ill-gotten gains from urine drug testing, laboratories, marketers, and addiction treatment programs have become swept up in the widely-cast net of federal, municipal, and insurance surveillance, at times even becoming the subjects of criminal prosecution.
Compliance is safety.
Although you can’t avoid the reality of UDT in addiction treatment, you can avoid getting snagged in the net by learning how to stay safely compliant in every aspect of urine drug testing.
