I admit I'm behind on my reading lately so I might have missed it, but what was Narconon Freedom Center doing with Quest Diagnostics that they came to owe them $50,000+?

Good question. I didn't find a copy of the complaint.

Do you know which lab they are using now?

They use Medytox which is a third party company for all lab work, drug testing etc.

Are they doing any other kind of lab tests besides drug testing?  Are the drug tests all urine tests, or do they do something more elaborate too?

They do urine tests for drugs and various kinds of blood tests.

Yes, especially while patients are in their medical detox part. More so if they have medical conditions needing monitoring during it.  As well, testing for drug use through out the length of the program either randomly or specifically.

Lab work is big business in this industry when insurance is involved.

Not for ethical rehabs, Mary.

No actually for ALL rehabs.  Drug testing is a must.  these companies bill the patients insurance.  The rehab does not see any money.  They just get there work done for free. This company in general serves a huge amount of rehab centers in the US.

Actually, rehabs can charge the insurance for drug testing and use an outside agency and pocket the difference. 

For example, there are a lot of fraud cases going on, in which treatment centers/sober living houses were drug testing people daily and then billing insurance for it.

I should have explained myself better. I'm well aware that drug tests are a must. Some rehabs are making a fortune off labs. The ethical ones are having reasonably priced ones done in the $60.00 range. Others are profiting from labs and source's link is a good example. They are billing $1200.00 for these labs! Outrageous!

I am well aware of the racket...however in this case the company does the billing not narconon so narconon does not profit.  My point was that yes narconon does many sketch things but this is not one of them.
