Emerging Drugs of Abuse

New and Emerging Drugs of Abuse, both illicit drugs and prescription medications, continuously enter the market causing demand for larger test panels to ensure patient recovery compliance. Synthetic Cannabinoids are a much more common drug of abuse today, in part caused by the ease of access to these illicit drugs. It is important to test for all potential drugs of abuse ensuring a patient’s safety and compliance during the critical early stages of recovery. LabSource recognizes and meets physicians' needs for current and highly accurate comprehensive toxicology testing results, along with meeting the need for rapid turn-around times for Addiction Medicine, Medication Assisted Therapy, and Intensive Outpatient Programs.
