STONE TOXICOLOGY TESTING

Stone Clinical Laboratories offers state of the art LC/MS/MS testing with an extensive test menu, including controlled substances, illicit drugs, as well as specialized pain management and mental health product offerings.

Drug overdose deaths increased dramatically from 1980 to 2016, surpassing deaths from guns, HIV, and car crashes (1). At least half of the deaths involved a prescription opioid obtained primarily from a friend or relative (2). Furthermore, rates of opioid and drug misuse, including abuse and diversion, continue to rise (3). Urine drug testing (UDT) is an effective tool in pain management to monitor compliance with prescribed medications (4). National guidelines recommend UDT not only to assess compliance but also to detect undisclosed substances and diversion (5).
