HUM provides unannounced or random 12 panel + alcohol urine drug Point of Care Testing (POCT) as part of continuing care for abstinence-based recovery from Addiction. POCT results can be provided within 15 minutes. The negative tests will serve as an objective base for any advocacy reports that may be needed on the client’s behalf.
All urine drug point of care testing (POCT) at HUM includes testing of any combination of the following substances: Methamphetamine; Amphetamine; Cocaine; Morphine; Ecstasy, Methadone metabolites, Tricyclic antidepressants; oxycodone; Barbiturates; Buprenorphine; Phencyclidine; Synthetic Cannabinoid; Ketamine; Methaqualone; Fentanyl; Tramadol; Ethyl Glucuronide; Marijuana and Benzodiazepines.
The client will be notified of positive test results and further treatment recommendations will be discussed jointly, to improve stability in recovery.
Any out of town absences require 48 hours notification and failure to show for a urine specimen will be considered a positive specimen and be recorded as such.
All positive tests will be confirmed by an independent laboratory through Calgary Health Labs in accordance with Chain of Custody protocol.
There will be an initial 15 minute meeting with the Registered Nurse and DATAC Certified Specimen Collector to go over the guidelines of the urine drug testing and to sign the agreement. The person will then be notified the day of testing by phone/text to come to the HUM office and provide a urine sample.
