Drug tests are used throughout the drug rehab and recovery process for a variety of reasons. Drug tests are generally administered prior to admission to a drug or alcohol program in order to determine the level and type of substances in any incoming patient’s system.
Addicted people may not be entirely honest when entering a program, or they may not remember or be aware of how many substances they have used. It is a good idea to know what drugs may be in the system before facilitating detox or administering adjunct medications during treatment. Drugs (including alcohol) may interact with each other, causing unintended and dangerous side effects; therefore, it is important to have a clear picture of exactly what and how much might be in the system before treatment can begin.
