Drug Testing and VA


I was told by my Dr that submit to urinalysis every 3 months, stating that it is a new VA policy and if I come up dirty for THC, I will not be allowed my pain meds. My question is when did this policy come out and where can I find it?

Your doctor is telling you the new way that opioids are prescribed in America today. This isn't so much a VA policy as it is a nationwide DEA action that affects every doctor, not just VA doctors. You will be drug tested...you can learn more here
