Prescription Management Drug-Testing

Coe Management Group offers Prescription Management Drug-Testing to verify that patients are taking their medication as prescribed. 

11% of Americans experience chronic pain, and prescription medication is usually given as a way for these people to manage their pain so they can live normal lives. However, many people abuse these prescription medications.

  • In 2013, there were 16,000 opioid-related overdose deaths
  • About 2 million people abused or were dependent on prescription drugs in 2013
  • In 2012, health care providers wrote 259 million prescriptions for opioid pain medication, enough for every adult in the United States to have a bottle

Opioid pain medication use presents serious risks, including overdose and opioid use disorder. 

The CDC recommends that all patients on long-term opioid therapy should have periodic and random drug tests to ensure that they are taking their recommended doses and are not taking different, non-prescribed medication or illegal substances.
