toxicology testing laboratory

At HealthQuest Esoterics, we understand the importance of delivering timely and accurate clinical toxicology testing. For clinicians, this information is needed not just to make precise diagnoses, but also to direct their therapy. We offer an extensive range of over 1000 different testing solutions across a range of specimens, including blood and urine, to help clinicians monitor for controlled substances or prescription drug use. Given the impact our testing services can have not just on the lives of patients, but also the wider community, the HealthQuest Esoterics team is committed to providing one of the most extensive and comprehensive toxicology testing menus in the industry, along with some of the fastest turnaround times. 

Addiction Treatment and Substance Abuse Testing

While drug test results on their own should not be the sole determinant when assessing patients for substance use disorder, in combination with the patient’s medical history, a psychosocial assessment and a physical exam, it can often provide invaluable information for medical professionals to determine the right course of treatment. Our clinical toxicology tests help clinicians at recovery centers and other healthcare facilities identify the specific drugs and chemicals affecting their patients, so they are able to accurately treat specific toxic effects, establish a treatment plan, and ensure patients comply with their prescribed medications.

Drug testing during the treatment process can also help ensure that patients are making progress on the road to recovery. We take pride in providing accurate testing results that can be taken into account along with each patient’s underlying physician and mental health issues, guiding clinicians to make the best possible treatment decisions for their patients.

Medication Monitoring

If your medical facility requires the support of a licensed and accredited medical reference laboratory, get in touch with our Southern California-based team today.
For patients with chronic conditions, including chronic pain, clear drug test results are imperative for clinicians managing these challenging cases, in a way that ensures the patient’s continued safety. Additionally, our tests can help medical professionals uncover any contraindications that may place patients at risk if they require a switch in particular medications, as well as ensuring that patients remain in compliance with their prescriptions, instead of under-medicating or over- medicating. We understand that interpreting these results can be complex in light of the unique nature of each patient, which is why our testing experts are available to help clinicians assess the information and make an informed decision for their patient.

Addiction Medicine: Clinical Toxicology Medical Testing For Recovery Centers

Treatment and Recovery Centers are an intrinsic part of the addition treatment landscape, and provide much needed services that can help those with substance addictions get and stay clean. Clinical toxicology testing in turn plays an integral role in helping clinicians in the industry to design comprehensive detoxification and recovery plans for their patients, because these tests do not lie, nor do they underplay drug use. While toxicology tests cannot be taken alone, they are vital across the entire process of addiction recovery when considered alongside each patient’s unique physical and mental condition and circumstances.

With accurate toxicology testing, the numbers provide immediate clarity into a patient’s drug use and compliance with a treatment regimen, and can help to sidestep any manipulation of the process that could get in the way of a patient’s overall recover. Drug testing can not only help to clarify whether a substance abuse problem exists, it can also elucidate the type of safe detoxification treatment that a patient might need to undergo at the beginning of their treatment, whether through a step-down of use, or through other medical means to manage acute withdrawal symptoms from substances like alcohol.

During the recovery process, ongoing testing not only helps to guide the appropriate level of treatment, but can determine whether progress is being made. More importantly, it builds a better foundation for the development of honesty between the patient and the medical professionals treating them as well. The objective answers gleaned from substance abuse testing can also be used to rebuild greater trust in other key relationships, such as with family, friends and work connections.

Many clinicians and patients also find that regular drug testing can help to prevent relapse, by forcing patients to be more accountable. Drug testing can also ensure greater integrity of the treatment process as a whole. In the event of a patient relapsing, even with no other obvious or outward signs of use, these tests can help spur an immediate response to minimize the amount of damage that the substances can have on a patient’s body.

Drug Testing Services Offered

We offer rigorous quality assurance for all of our tests, from standard federal drug panels to fully customized tests for individual substances. Most existing drug panels test only for the most commonly abused illicit substances, including Amphetamines, Cocaine and Optiates. Depending on your facility’s area of expertise, we can offer panels tailored to specific chemicals, and even develop brand new tests for the ever changing designer drug of choice. We are also able to test for prescription drug misuse, which is a key concern as part of the ongoing opiate crisis. All of our tests are designed to deliver in excess of 95% accuracy, and to be difficult for patients to manipulate. We are proud to deliver some of the quicket turnarounds in the industry, and will work closely with you to meet your unique testing needs. In addition to all this, we can provide assistance with sample collection and delivery based on your requirements, for full end- to-end service.
