River City Integrative Counseling’s monthly urine drug screen monitoring policy during COVID-19
Effective 4/1/2020, clients who are enrolled in our Alcohol and Drug Treatment Program will continue to provide random urine drug screen samples in the office. Clients will be notified via email, text, and a phone call by 4:00pm on any given day throughout the month that they are required to report to our office to submit a urine sample within 24-hours and/or by 5pm the following day. Clients will be responsible for contacting our Practice Manager, Madison Cully, at 804-477-8298 or our Office Administrator, Mel Nickerson, at 804-681-2525 to schedule their urine drug screen appointment for the following day and/or within 24-hours. Clients who fail to report to our office to provide their random urine drug screen sample on their requested day will be returned non-compliant back to their referring VASAP Agency and/or Probation and Parole Officer. Exceptions to this requirement will be considered on a case-by-case basis and require official signed documentation from employer (if working) or PCP (if quarantined).
In observance of COVID-19 containment protocols, RCIC will stagger appointment times for required in-person UDS appointments to minimize face-to-face contact. RCIC employees will follow infection control guidelines by utilizing gloves and maintain 6ft. distance at all times during monitoring / urine collection procedures. The outside surfaces of all test devices will be sanitized when changing hands between individuals to protect against transmission of infection.
