Professional Laboratory Monitoring at Providence Treatment
At Providence Treatment we are committed to our clients achieving the highest recovery rates possible for their health and well-being. One critical way we do this is recommending that each client commit to a one-year monitoring program at the time of admission. We model our monitoring services after the program designed for pilots and physicians, which has an 80+% sustained recovery rate. We understand addiction to be a chronic disease; therefore we integrate chronic disease management in our treatment and recommendations for care with long-term contingency planning.
Our professional laboratory monitoring program, which provides random alcohol and drug testing for each of our clients, is a key component of our Pennsylvania addiction treatment. Often required by an employer, medical board, court, or even a spouse, random alcohol and drug testing is used to ensure abstinence from any addictive and mood altering substance. And it works.
In fact, monitoring programs have been study-proven to help physicians, pilots and other safety sensitive professions, who require monitoring for up to five years after primary addiction treatment at a rehab, sustain their recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. In fact, those participating in professional laboratory monitoring programs are shown to have a higher recovery rate — an overwhelming 90 percent after three years – compared to those who are not tested.
