WorkplaceTesting Explains Fix
A fix is directly associated with a pattern of addictive and often spontaneous behavior.
Individuals receive their fix from a variety of legal and/or illegal
substances including barbiturates, cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana,
methamphetamines, and prescribed opioids. A drug fix usually starts with
a low dosage, but repeat drug use causes the brain to develop
tolerance. For people to experience the initial intoxicating effects,
larger incremental dosages are needed to achieve their fix.
