Drug Rehabilitation

Maintaining an open relationship between client and clinician is critical to the success of any drug rehabilitation programme and drug screening can play a positive role in enabling a more transparent approach to treatment and in measuring a client’s progress towards recovery.

In contrast to traditional drug screening approaches which require oral fluid or urine samples, fingerprint-based drug testing offers a convenient, hygienic and dignified solution that can be easily implemented in different settings, whether clinical or community-based.

Benefits

In drug rehabilitation it’s especially important that drug screening serves as a positive tool to help keep a client on track, rather than a degrading or punitive measure which could discourage people from seeking help.

With the portable and non-invasive Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System, drug testing is quick, easy and, most importantly, dignified. By removing some concerns clients may have about entering treatment, fingerprint-based drug screening may contribute directly to the ongoing success of rehabilitation programmes.

The portability of the Intelligent Fingerprint Drug Screening System means that testing doesn’t need to be carried out in a clinical setting, making it easier to set up screening sessions, collect samples, administer tests and get results. In addition, being able to operate within a broad range of venues means that drug rehabilitation services can get closer to the people who most need their support.

FAQs

  • How does the Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System work?

    The system screens for drug use by analysing chemicals (known as metabolites) contained in the minute traces of eccrine sweat found in a fingerprint. The presence of drug metabolites in someone’s fingerprint sweat indicates drug use by that individual. Note: Drug metabolites are produced by the body as a result of normal metabolic processes and can be analysed to identify the drug substances a person may have ingested, inhaled or injected.

  • Why should I switch to the Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System?

    In short, for speed and convenience. Our portable fingerprint drug test is quick and easy to perform any time, in a variety of locations. In comparison with traditional screening procedures involving saliva or urine, fingerprint sample collection is dignified and hygienic and it takes just 5 seconds to deposit a fingerprint onto our disposable Drug Screening Cartridge. The test can be administered by non-medical, non-gender-specific staff and there is no need for specialist collection facilities or clinical waste disposal for used cartridges.

  • How easy is it to use?

    The system is simple and convenient to use, with no need for specialist staff or specially prepared collection areas. The fingerprint sample is collected onto the Intelligent Fingerprinting Cartridge. The Cartridge is analysed using the portable Intelligent Fingerprinting Reader 1000 (which is battery-powered or can be plugged into the mains), touchscreen-operated and fully automated. Within ten minutes the screen displays a simple negative or positive result against pre-determined thresholds for each drug in the test used.

  • Which drugs does it detect?

    The Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System currently detects four commonly abused drug groups: amphetamines, cannabis, cocaine and opiates.
