SPICE has been a thorn in my side for the last year. It’s been incredibly difficult to deal with from a treatment operations perspective. I often referred to SPICE as a drug rehab killer, because it was undetectable in urine tests, was cheap, and could legally be bought at head shops. With the new Urine Test from Redwood Toxicology Labs we can send a client’s urine into the their lab and simply check off a box asking them to test for SPICE and they can track it up to 72 hours in the urine. So, if a client has used SPICE within 72 hours of the urinalysis test they give, the test will detect it.
I have talked to Redwood Labs and they said that there is one other company that just developed a test for SPICE, but it does not test for the metabolite involved, making Redwood’s test superior and at $50 it is cheap!
Finally addiction treatment facilities around the nation can breath a sigh of relief and tackle the growing SPICE epidemic in addiction treatment facilities head-on. I have put a link to Redwood’s SPICE Test below. NTS has no affiliation with Redwood Toxicology Laboratory, but we are extremely grateful they have helped solve this problem for drug rehabs everywhere.
