Prescribing opioid pain medication can be very challenging for physician, ensuring those patients who require pain management to maintain their quality of life are provided proper treatment; while those patients seeking opioid medication for recreational abuse or diversion are identified. The opioid epidemic has placed physicians who routinely prescribe opioid medications, particularly pain management physicians, under a tremendous amount of scrutiny to ensure they are prescribing proper dosing and quantities to their patients. Urine drug testing helps to protect the patient and the practitioner.

Definitive Drug Testing is the only way to ensure a patient is compliant with their pain management treatment. Compliance monitoring for the proper use of prescribed opioids is critical in delivering proper opioid therapy treatment. Our expanded pain management profile, with nor-metabolite testing, allows a physician to positively identify the opioid medications they have prescribed to their patient; through our comprehensive metabolite testing results. Large testing panels enable physicians to detect non-prescribed medications, non-reported medications and illicit drug use, providing pain management physicians a complete toxicology profile.

Reasons for Definitive Urine Drug Testing in Pain Management:

  • Establish a pretreatment baseline.
  • Detect the presence of prescribed medications.
  • Support or refute a patient’s self-reporting of medication adherence.
  • Detect the presence of non-prescribed medications and illicit drugs.
  • Provide guidance for pain management treatment planning.
  • Provide safe and effective treatment for patients.
