Urine analysis has been the preferred screening method used by many drug treatment agencies for a considerable time now. However this particular screening method has been viewed by some to be an intrusion of their human rights and its effectiveness in reducing illicit drug use has come in to question in recent times. This exploratory case study focused on the views of participants from the Bawnogue Youth and Family Support Group Rehabilitation Day Programme “Station One” in relation to their perspective of urine analysis. What is clear from the findings presented in this study is that urine analysis is viewed to be an important part of the participant’s recovery. If given the choice the majority of the participants would choose to continue to give urine samples as part of their recovery plan. This study includes the participant’s individual responses in relation to their perspective of urine analysis in the context of a rehabilitation day programme.
