Drug Treatment Centers
Drug addiction is a disease which can be physical, psychological, or both, depending on the substance’s effect. Still, this condition shouldn’t necessarily be criminalized as a method of prevention but handled with open communication, guidance, and understanding.
Quantum Diagnostics can connect you with rehabilitation centers and medical detoxification facilities with toxicology testing to better tackle the issues of substance abuse and find solutions that focus on integrating users to society, not excluding them.
Thanks to our comprehensive, accurate, and cost-efficient analyses, we have developed trustworthy relationships with many physicians and rehabilitation specialists. We also help drug and alcohol rehab specialists to determine which methodology of treatment will be effective for the client’s condition.
Quantum Diagnostics can detect if patients have failed to take their medications, or if they are diluting substances with additional compounds. This drug monitoring system can help stave off relapses and detect any missteps during treatment.
As opposed to drawing blood specimen, which usually requires a patient’s consent, the collection of a urine specimen is needle-free and easy.
Drugs and drug metabolites that are found in urine are typically in a stable condition, meaning that there is a high chance of distinguishing them. Urine specimens usually contain detectable levels of drug use at a high concentration and over an extended period of time.
Drugs of abuse in urine (DAU) testing often have a three-day window of opportunity to accurately detect drug abuse. However, for drugs which dissolve in lipids, fats, or oils, evidence can remain in urine for a longer period. Psychoactive drugs can last up to 21 days, while traces of cannabinoids remain in urine for up to 60 days.
Although urine testing is the most common drug testing method, it’s not foolproof. That’s why we suggest specimen validity testing. By measuring pH, creatinine and specific gravity and testing for adulterants and may be added to the urine; we can ensure the integrity of the test. Quantum Diagnostics is one of the few laboratories to offer oxidant identification for some of the most common oxidizing adulterants.
