MECX Medical’s Alcohol & Drug Testing Services For Sports Teams & Athletes
It was back in 2017 that the UK Anti-Doping organised its first clean sport week which was started to help to fight sports cheats. Surprisingly the UKAD research which was carried out identified that 48% of UK adults actually believe that doping is widespread in sport. While a staggering two-thirds of UK adults actually stated their faith had been eroded due to drug usage by elite sports performers. With sports stars earning more and being under more pressure than ever before, it is unsurprising that many high-profile sportspeople succumb to the temptation of recreational drugs and alcohol. At Mecx Medical we believe that prevention is better than cure. That’s why we offer random or for cause drug testing services to ensure the health, safety and welfare of athletes. This not only promotes fair competition but affirms compliance with sports regulations, whilst identifying athletes who are improperly using drugs or alcohol and to assist them before they harm themselves or others.
