Why was this test done?

this is info from MRO Drug Detail Report . Test is employment related. We are not sure what medications are prescribed. Employee only provided letter from rehab about being treated. No further details. GC/MS confirmation - please explain that one.
Drug Testing Expert: Family Physician, Board Certified MRO replied 2 years ago
There are two types of tests - screening tests that rely on immunoassay and confirmation tests (using GC/MS technology) that eliminates any issues with false positives from chemical interference from other medications.
Without specific information on any medications being prescribed, it is not possible to determine if the positive tests are the result of legal prescription use OR if they are the result of illicit use/abuse.
The report does need to be reviewed by a MRO who would interview the employee and verify any reported legal prescription use.

Gotcha. But the question was. Might any rehab facility legal drug administration procedure cause opiates positive result?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Also I guess they sent us 10 panel test and MRO will follow it seems like. MRO was also ordered. Is it possible that the person filled questionnaire at the collection facility and this MRO will be based on it? I think we do not have MRO yet seems like. We have info that this was MRO but looks like a clerical mistake and this is 10 panel retest ( we initially ordered 5 panel and then retest in 10 panel)
Drug Testing Expert: Family Physician, Board Certified MRO replied 2 years ago
a rehab might prescribe an opiate for pain.
The interpretation of these tests MUST be done by a MRO who interviews the donor.
Poppy seeds can also theoretically cause low levels of morphine - but the actual concentration on the GC/MS confirmation would be needed.
You really MUST get this reviewed by a MRO. Your local hospital occupational medicine department would likely have a MRO.
If not, you could find one through AAMRO
https://www.aamro.com/
or
MROCC
https://www.mrocc.org/Search.cfm
These are the two national MRO certication organizations

then - employee must be contacted? Or it will rely on his questionnaire or MRO must actually get in actual (call or in person) contact with the donor?
Drug Testing Expert: Family Physician, Board Certified MRO replied 2 years ago
The MRO would need to contact the donor directly. The fact that someone says "I'm taking X, Y or Z" medications is not the same as a MRO review and VERIFICATION (from the pharmacy, physician or rehab DIRECTLY) by the MRO.

o. Lastly - is it possible for a person treated for opiates addiction to be administered any opiates at rehab for medicinal purposes?
Drug Testing Expert: Family Physician, Board Certified MRO replied 2 years ago
I'm very sorry for the delay - I had some emergencies I needed to attend to.
YES - in rare cases, opiates could be appropriately used.
