DATELINE: STURBRIDGE, MA…
Physicians, treatment programs, and residential recovery facilities throughout the region have gained a strong ally in their effort to help people in recovery from substance addiction with the launch of Precision Testing Laboratories, Inc. in Sturbridge, MA.
David Fromm, President of Precision Testing Labs, explains the lab’s objectives, “Precision’s testing paradigm is employed to help people in recovery from substance abuse maintain abstinence and redirect attention toward recovery which formerly may have gone toward planning relapse. By employing frequent, therapeutic drug testing early in the recovery process, we hope to help patients gain a foothold in the often-difficult beginning of sobriety. We believe that if a recovering addict can be convinced that further abuse will certainly be detected then the consequences which may attach to relapse can be brought to mind in starker relief. There are very few medical tools to aid in recovery from chemical addiction. High quality clinical testing is certainly one of them if properly employed. It is our mission to bring this tool to the recovering addict wherever and whenever medically ordered”.
Precision’s staff is dedicated to serving the needs of people in recovery by providing a level of vigilance and involvement that is rarely found in the delivery of laboratory services. Precision will aid in the completion of necessary paperwork, provide comprehensive interpretation of results and customized analyses of trends in an individual’s testing record.
In addition, Precision offers testing for patients involved with longer-term pain management. Testing aids physicians providing pain care by ensuring that patients are taking their medications and that the dosages are appropriate. Testing also detects un-prescribed drugs and street drugs which could lead to life-threatening interaction or overdose.
Fromm believes Precision Testing Laboratories is already playing a unique role in the recovery community, “As the only lab founded and primarily dedicated to serving those in recovery, we are building relationships with physicians, treatment facilities, and residential programs which share our paradigm of therapeutic, recovery-focused testing. We don’t employ the cookie cutter approach too often found in larger, less focused laboratories. We view proper, therapeutic testing as an integral component of the recovery process and Precision Testing Laboratories as a strong ally and partner serving the needs of patients and those who are dedicated to helping them”.
