Abstinence and Sobriety Monitoring in Family Law Matters:
It’s more complicated than you think!
Drug testing can take many forms. The person’s drug of choice often determines the frequency of randomized testing, the type of test ordered, and whether results are needed immediately.
All cases that are monitored need to start with an agreed-upon abstinence and recovery plan. A professional most qualified to design a specific recovery plan is someone with expertise and experience in substance abuse disorders. This professional monitor serves as a case manager, sharing all information via a written report to the appropriate parties.
