One of the first things our clients will need to do is undertake a comprehensive drug test. With our clients well-being at the forefront of everything we do at The Excel Center we must understand what substances they have been using in order to provide the best care. The methods vary in the sampling process as well as their outcomes. Some testing methods provide a shorter or longer window into the use of substances. Generally speaking, the tests that require bodily fluids provide a shorter window into substance use than tests that require things like hair or nail clippings. The reasons for the use of different testing methods can be based on what is trying to be determined from a test. If accuracy is most important, there are tests that are more accurate than others. If a long window of substance use is the main concern, a testing method can also be chosen accordingly.

Addiction not only affects those struggling with the addiction but also affects the friends and family around them.

Learning to create a loving, supportive space without enabling can be difficult, but it is crucial to develop this space to help your loved ones through their recovery.
