As part of the new partnership, Shatterproof will now be the preferred nonprofit to receive donations for helping in spreading opioid addiction awareness and solutions.
"Partnering with Shatterproof has been one of our main goals for this year, and we are proud and humbled to support an organization that is making a difference in the lives of so many people struggling with substance abuse disorder," said P.

"Our goal is to be a leader in the laboratory space, and at the same time, be part of the solution, which will help give access to quality treatment care for individuals coping with this disorder."

"The support of TGB Labs enables Shatterproof to save lives by transforming the addiction treatment system, with a focus on making evidence-based treatment the standard of care."
Shatterproof is constantly working to reduce the stigma and secrecy associated with addiction, removing the shame so many people and families feel they need to shoulder alone. The nonprofit is always looking to form strategic partnerships that make our communities that much stronger.
TGB Labs is known for optimizing patient care through fast turnaround times, improved specimen preservation and tracking protocols, integrated information systems, and highly accurate detailed reports.
Additionally, TGB Labs donates up to 10% of their net income to nonprofit organizations focused on substance abuse awareness and prevention.
