A substance abuse counselor has a client who was a chronic marijuana user but he believes the client has been clean for some time. The client is under court supervision and the judge continues to order drug screens, the results of which show positive for Marijuana.
Solution: The counselor calls Span. After some review Span determines that the Judge is specifically ordering Hair Tests. Knowing that hair testing will detect drug use for up to ninety days Span recommends urine drug screens.
The Outcome: The next time the client goes to court the counselor joins him. He presents the judge with three negative urine drug screens taken over the course of the previous several days and advises that he believes the client has been abstinent. The judge makes an informed decision based on more accurate assessment.
