"Very unhappy about the result of my DIP test"

About: Addaction Lincoln

(as the patient),

I am a addaction client, and I am a recovering heroin user, and im very unhappy about the result of my DIP test, I havent used heroin for 10 days and still I come back positive for opiates.

I do belive some test may be faulty.

Please take this into concideration.

Yours sincerely.

Response from Steve Hewish, Locality manager, Lincoln, Addaction

I'm very sorry that you feel this way, there may be a number of reasons why you are testing positive to opiates, may I suggest that you discuss this with your key worker who will be able to explore with you why the test may showing positive to opiates and offer you a different type of test to investigate the matter further.

Please feel free to raise this with me directly should you have any further problems.

We wish you continued success with your recovery
