Urine surveillance of opiate addicts in methadone treatment programs is an important feature of contemporary treatment techniques. The purposes of urinalysis were defined by Nightingale, Michaux and Platt (1972):
To yield clinical information to the counselor.
To encourage the client’s abstinence from illicit use.
To symbolize the counselor’s interest in the client’s progress.
