Quest Diagnostics has been a trusted partner and a leader in diagnostic testing for more than 50 years. We offer a broad range of drug tests to identify the presence of prescribed, non-prescribed, and illicit drugs. We also provide other clinical testing services for conditions such as infectious disease and general health.
At Quest Diagnostics, we believe that drug monitoring should be utilized as part of a standard of clinical care when controlled substances are prescribed. This can help ensure compliance, and identify harmful drug interactions, misuse, abuse, and diversion.
We recognize that opioid use for medically necessary pain management can improve the quality of life for patients, and we believe that in those cases, drug testing is an important solution to ensure patient safety, and ultimately, helping to address the opioid epidemic. Many organizations agree—including the CDC, American Academy of Pain Medicine, American Pain Society, and the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians—and recommend urine drug testing for chronic pain patients as an important way to to help improve patient safety and promote compliance.
We also believe that good clinical care must be balanced by cost, and that’s why we support responsible drug testing. Best practices include presumptive testing and confirming unexpected positives or negatives with definitive testing. This helps minimize over-testing while providing the right level of information needed to make informed decisions.
