Despite the adverse consequences associated with addiction, patients with substance use disorders are, by definition, driven by an uncontrollable craving and an inability to abstain; relapse is common, even after several months of abstinence.

At Alere Toxicology, we support recovery. Objective monitoring of drug use is integral to treatment strategies and essential for early detection and intervention. We are committed to helping you develop a robust and compliant drug-testing program that aids treatment decisions, enhances patient safety, and improves patient outcomes.
