The increased expediency, access and results of in-house laboratory and diagnostic testing services will allow the StepHouse Recovery staff to act immediately on the client’s behalf in terms of their sobriety and treatment.

StepHouse Recovery, a Fountain Valley-based addiction treatment center, recently announced its partnership with Horizon Toxicology, which has opened an on-site drug testing laboratory to further aid in the clinical care and support services of the facility. Because toxicology screenings give staff the most accurate portrayal of a client’s health and status at any time, the increased expediency, access and results of in-house laboratory and diagnostic testing services will allow the StepHouse Recovery staff to act immediately on the client’s behalf in terms of their sobriety and treatment.

As an addiction residential treatment center, StepHouse Recovery’s vested interest in safeguarding clients’ sobriety goes beyond ensuring its reputation in the local recovery and business community; ultimately, an active relapse can pose immediate concerns - not only for the client, but those around him or her as well. Aside from being a component of comprehensive care, Horizon Toxicology’s laboratory and diagnostic testing service allow staff to provide critical counseling and support, as well as a recalibration of treatment and recovery options in the event of a relapse.

“We consider drug testing a positive and helpful aspect of treatment,” says George Vilagut, CEO and Founder of StepHouse Recovery. “It encourages client honesty and trust-building among clients and staff members, and of course, helps us immensely with relapse prevention efforts. We are ecstatic that our partnership with Horizon Toxicology will allow us to have the fastest and most accurate screenings possible, which will enable us to more quickly and better serve our clients in recovery.”

Through urine analysis and DNA swab tests, the state-of-the-art toxicology lab will allow staff to check for a wide range of prescription and illicit drugs and substances, including alcohol, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, marijuana, cocaine, and opioids, as well as for adulterants frequently used to circumvent the tests.

“Because addiction can be a life or death predicament, it’s even that much more important that we get the quickest readings available,” says Vilagut. “The lives of our clients hang in the balance, and the drug tests supplied by the services of Horizon Toxicology will ensure clients get the help they need, as soon as they need it.
