My clinic tests our urine for drugs then sends it to covenant hospital to have it tested further. If you drop dirty they will know exactly what you took and possibly how much. The hospital also screens our urine for alcohol. Does anyone else's clinic send everyones urine into a lab, even if its clean?
By the way this is not a complaint about my clinic. I love my clinic and am thankful that i found such a great clinic with a caring staff. I was just curious.

If a patient comes back positive for alcohol how do they handle it? Do they refuse to dose the patient or do they give you a warning against mixing alcohol and Methadone?
I know a lot of patients don't believe the clinic should be allowed to test for alcohol, they figure it's no ones business if they have a drink or two.

In some ways I can agree with them. I know how dangerous it is to mix alcohol with Methadone. But what if someone were to say like go out to eat and have a couple of drinks before dinner. Would it be right for the clinic to refuse to dose them the next day?

Now if a patient presents themselves at the clinic and it is obvious they have been drinking, I can see not dosing them.

This is an interesting topic and I'd like to hear what everyone's views are on it.

I use to be an alky, but heroin did a much better job after 20 years of drinking. Thank God I don't want to drink anymore. That was a worst beast than H actually.
