Drug testing may be carried out at regular intervals or at any time throughout rehabilitation and recovery to keep individuals accountable, sober, honest, and drug free during recovery. Random drug tests are harder to beat and therefore more challenging to predict. Drug testing may also prevent dangerous relapsing episodes.
