Urine Drug Testing in Addiction Treatment and Mental Health

Urine drug testing is a key diagnostic and therapeutic tool that is useful for monitoring the ongoing status of a person who is being treated for addiction. Test results provide drug-specific identification to support clinicians treating patients with substance use disorders (SUD).  UDT testing is appropriate during inpatient or outpatient addiction treatment, and is particularly appropriate at the onset of a course of treatment.  It can also serve as a deterrent to substance use and increase the likelihood of successful abstinence.
