Required Components of an Illicit Drug and Alcohol Screening for the National Quality Standards.

All recovery homes must have a policy on what will happen if a screening for illicit substances reveals substance use.

A test result that reveals substance use is considered a recurrence of symptoms, and your appropriate policy must be followed.

It is important that an organization’s illicit drug and alcohol screening policy be very clear that if a screening reveals use of substances, then the recovery housing program’s Recurrence of Use policy will be followed.
