One of the most effective ways to ensure abstinence in early recovery is through recovery coaching and random drug testing. Initial results are showing a 95% abstinence rate for up to a year.
Recovery monitoring can benefit anyone in early recovery. However, it is especially helpful for young adults, individuals with dual diagnoses, and those who have experienced chronic relapse.
