"Better Living Through Sober Living"!

The random and scheduled drug testing at Jeffrey's House is now administered on-site by our trained House Managers. We previously had a drug testing laboratory come to the house and administer all drug test, however, changes in the state law as well as new procedures put in place by Mass-Health, required us to make this change. The Multi-Drug Urine Test Panels that we use are FDA approved, and are used by The Massachusetts Parole Board, The Massachusetts Probation Department, and numerous Sober and Halfway Houses. The drugs that we test for are as follows:

Amphetamine (AMP)

Barbiturates (BAR)

Bendiazepines (BZO)

Cocaine (COC)

Marijuana (THC)

Methamphetamine (MET)

Ecstasy (MDMA)

Morphine (MOP)

Methadone (MTD)

Opiates (OPI)

Phencyclidine (PCP)

Tricyclics Antidepressants (TCA)

Oxycodone (OXY)

Unfortunately, there are times when our residents test positive for drugs; when such an event occurs we MUST require you to leave the house with in 24 hours to protect the integrity of the rest of our clients. Our test have proven to be 99.99% accurate, however, because of human error, cross contamination with prescription drugs legally in your body, and other misc. factors, on the rarest of occasions there could be a false positive. If a client thinks they have a false positive, it is our policy to afford them a 5 hour window to get to the nearest hospital, (Leominster Hospital) check themselves in, and have a drug screen done at their own cost. In order for us to override our original results, the hospital paper work that you return to us with must contain the following:

Exact name on discharge paperwork and bracelet.

Today's date.

The time must be within 5 hours of our original test.

It must specify that you tested NEGATIVE for the specific drug that we said you tested positive for.

We apologize in advance for any trouble that this drug testing policy and procedure may cause you, but it's very necessary for us to do in order to help our clients stay SOBER!
