Subject: Oral fluid testing
Thank you for your continued participation and cooperation in the SC Recovering Professional Program (RPP).
I am writing to update you and report that RPP will permit participants to continue oral fluid testing, also known as PROOF testing, through RecoveryTrek on an interim basis, as an option for testing. This decision was made, in part, based upon the increased number of COVID-19 cases and lab-related issues, to include extended wait times at labs. Although best practices indicate that urine drug testing is the most effective toxicology testing for safety-sensitive positions, we do recognize the current issues surrounding the pandemic and feel that interim use is appropriate. RPP will re-evaluate whether to allow continued use of the PROOF kits in three months.
We value you as a participant and we strive to provide excellent monitoring service. Should you have any questions or concerns, you are always encouraged to contact your assigned recovery specialist or our toll-free emergency line at 877 349 2094. Please contact Recovery Trek’s Success Manager, Caitlyn Fendley at 757 943 9800 x8, to order your PROOF testing kits and receive instructions.
