Hello!

No, there is no such DEA requirement.

It is true that the DEA has been following much closer doctor practices as to prescribing pain meds ( and other controlled substances) It may be a particular doctor's practice to routinely obtain a urine drug screen.

Urine drug screens and pain contracts are included in practice guidelines to which doctor's may refer > that much is true...
