And ELIMINATES collection site issues and errors. PROOF ™ will help leading employers align with the ASAM COVID-19 Task Force Recommendations: "1. Considerations for Pausing Drug Testing in Clinical Practice - 'Requiring patients to present to a health care facility to provide samples for drug testing may be more harmful than beneficial. Patients may unnecessarily increase their risks of exposure to the novel coronavirus through their travel to or presence in health care facilities.' 4. Exploring Options for Drug Testing at a Distance - 'Any alternative testing protocol should minimize contact betweenstaff and patients and minimize the strain on local laboratory services.' 'Precautions should be appropriately taken when working with these body fluids.' 'Drug testing from home: The COVID-19 pandemic and related physical distancing practices may go on for many months. ASAM’s recommendations mean that employers should explore options for drug testing at a distance such as using oral fluid-based tests and/or home breathalyzer tests monitored via telehealth.'

RecoveryTrek Founder and CEO, Kirk Cizerle says: “When I first started RecoveryTrek with my
father, Frank Cizerle, in 2010, my mission was to build partnerships that help our clients and their participants stay on track throughout the recovery journey. Today, our mission and commitment to our partners is stronger than ever. Together with our experienced staff, we continue to develop and provide the most innovative technology solutions for substance use case management, monitoring, and drug testing.
This is made possible with the dedicated support and involvement of our clients’ Program Directors and Case Managers, who we work with every day to simplify and improve their programs. Integral to this is our Success Management Software (SMS), which has become the preferred foundation for delivery of integrated, turnkey drug testing solutions”.
From a spare room in his home in 2011, Kirk Cizerle started what has become a national substance-use tracking firm that employs a team of 25 and works with more than 100 monitoring programs and treatment centers across the country and overseas. RecoveryTrek, now located in the Wells Fargo building in Norfolk, gets its name from the fact that drug and alcohol addiction is a lifelong trek to recovery. It was inspired by Cizerle’s previous work with a similar company. “As the saying goes, I thought I could build a better mousetrap and create some differentiators that would allow us to do better than anyone else,” he said.
RecoveryTrek’s cloud-based management software supports programs that monitor people as they go through recovery. It provides clients a platform from which to work, be it the company, the health professional or the individual.
“The licensed professional community in recovery going through monitoring has an 80 percent-plus success rate,” Cizerle said. “The general community coming out of treatment has almost the exact opposite. So there is about an 80 percent chance that you are going to relapse without monitoring.”
The mission of these programs and what we directly support is twofold. One is to protect the public from folks who may be under the influence or could be at risk and the other is to advocate for the individual,” Cizerle said. “The idea is for everyone to be successful. At the end of the day, what we do for a living does help people. As a company, we help people gettheir lives back and get back to work.”
