Video: Drug Testing, Reducing Use and Supporting Recovery

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

In the fifth Review Show George Williams talks to Georgie Foster and Rebecca Taylor from Concateno about the role of testing in meeting the objectives of the Home Office Drug Strategy to reduce drug use and support individuals in their recovery.

Drug tests are widely used by substance misuse services, the NHS, drug rehabilitation centres, harm reduction organisations, the prison and probation services; and increasingly by employers. The interview explores the process, the effectiveness and how testing is viewed by drug workers and those who undergo the tests.

Concateno is a drug testing company that provides substance misuse testing services to most of the healthcare and criminal justice organisations in the UK, and carry out more than 10 million tests a year.
