Westminster House  can provide Medical Monitoring for clients who may require it for there Clinical Assessment and Individualized Treatment Plan.  Through a partnership with Heath Quest, we can provide random testing for 12 of the most commonly used drugs; Substance Abuse Medical Monitoring as well as Workplace Drug and Alcohol Training.

Medial Monitoring is performed whenever a family member, health practitioner, employer, legal entity, or athletic organization needs to determine whether a person has illegal or banned substances in his or her body or is compliant with prescribed medications. It may be ordered to help a family regain trust in their love one or prior to the start of some new jobs and insurance policies and at random to satisfy workplace, court-ordered, adherence monitoring, or athletic drug testing program requirements.
