Drugs of Abuse

Whether it is employment screening or clinical testing for drugs of abuse, our skilled staff works with each client to customize a testing panel to the individual needs. It doesn’t stop there, our toxicologists are continuously identifying and proactively adding new drugs of interest to our growing test offerings. Testing includes: urine drug screening, positive and negative, conformational testing as well as quantifiable results.

Prescription Compliance Testing

Compliance testing for prescribed medications can help clinicians determine if his or her patient is following prescribing instructions, metabolizing the drug properly, missing doses or has stopped treatment all together.

Every Prescription Testing panel is customized for the medications prescribed by each clinician with whom we work. Our confirmatory testing provides quantifiable results for any medications. In addition to current medications, we can identify non-prescribed medications for patients that test positive for other drugs of abuse.

AIM Laboratories Provides Advanced Clinical Toxicology Services for Employers and Workers

A toxicology screen determines the approximate amount and type of legal or illegal drugs and is primarily used to screen for drug abuse, to monitor a substance abuse problem, or to evaluate drug intoxication or overdose.

 

Toxicology screening can be done quickly at AIM Labs’ state-of-the-art facility. The test is most often done using a urine or blood sample. In some cases, a sample of saliva or hair may be used. The results can show the presence of one specific drug or a variety of drugs at once.
