PRESENTATION:   Urine drug testing in clinical substance use disorder treatment settings can, when conducted effectively and results interpreted correctly, support greater attainment of abstinence goals. At admission, it can help provide a clearer diagnostic picture. During treatment, it helps patients adhere to treatment plan objectives and helps assess patient stability as they move through the program. When urine drug testing is introduced as a clinical tool rather than a potential source of contention, it can support motivational enhancement strategies. At the completion of this training, participants will be able to:

1) Understand basic urine drug testing systems, tools, strategies and methods.
2) Identify urine drug testing as a credible element of clinical care with regard to medical necessity guidelines.
3) Understand the difference between unsupervised, supervised, and observed means of collection, and proper guidelines in obtaining samples.
4) Identify when confirmation testing is appropriate or necessary.
5) Read and interpret test results reliably.

PRESENTER:   Peter LoIacono, MA, LADC has held many positions in substance use disorder treatment since 1987, including fifteen years as clinician and educator at the Brattleboro Retreat’s Starting Now intensive outpatient program. He currently has private practices in Keene, NH, Brattleboro, VT, and Greenfield, MA, and is an LADC in those states. Before establishing a full-time private practice in 2016, Peter worked for a period as an account representative for a nationally recognized urine drug testing company. Peter’s interests include all aspects of addiction research, holistic recovery approaches such as diet and exercise modifications, and quality of life as it influences recovery potential.
