Increasing abuse of prescription drugs and Rise in demand for drug abuse testing among private employers: Key Drivers

  • The abuse of prescription drugs or nonmedical use of prescription drugs has become a serious public health concern owing to its high prevalence and mortality rates in the U.S.
  • As per the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), around 52 million people have used prescription drugs for nonmedical reasons at least once in their lifetimes. Also, pain reliever Vicodin and OxyContin are the most abused prescription drugs among the young population.
  • High rate of comorbid illnesses are also responsible for wrong prescription and addiction to prescription drugs among elderly population. Continuous increase in the abuse of prescription drugs is expected to propel demand for drugs of abuse testing products globally.
  • Individuals using illicit drugs are more likely to change jobs, be less productive, be absent frequently, and are more likely to get involved in a workplace accident. Hence, several employers emphasize on regulating the workforce from drug abstinence through regular drugs of abuse tests. This is likely to increase demand for drug abuse testing from private and public employers during the forecast period.
