What you don't know can be deadly.

Over the last 15 years, deaths resulting from prescription drug use have quadrupled.1 In fact, there are more deaths every year as a result of prescription drug overdose than deaths that occur from traffic accidents.2 According to a recent information from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administraiton (SAMHSA), over 52 million Americans have abused prescription drugs. Compass Laboratory Services is dedicated to helping provide the information essential to curbing this epidemic. By employing the highest quality instrumentation, Compass provides comprehensive prescription drug management testing (PDM) to test for numerous prescribed and illicit substances. Compass helps practitioners and patients have confidence in their results and the treatments that depend upon those results.

6.1 million Americans have used prescription drugs non-medically in the last month.3

With adverse drug reactions as a leading cause of death in the US, prescription drug management and monitoring is now more important than ever before.

62% of patients in a recent study tested negative for the medications which they were prescribed.4

Prescription drug management testing can provide valuable insight for patients in either pain management or mental health programs. Compass helps providers protect their practice, their patients, and the public by providing the full patient picture with Prescription Drug Management testing.
