San Diego-based urine drug testing company accused of fraud, mafia-style tactics of intimidation

In just 20 years’ time, the number of prescriptions written for pharmaceutical drugs in the U.S. has skyrocketed more than six-fold, which has consequently driven up demand for urine drug testing services by doctors trying to monitor their patients’ drug intake habits. But with this boom in the urine drug testing industry has come a wave of fraud and corruption allegations, including a recent case involving San Diego, California-based Millennium Laboratories, which is said to be one of the largest urine drug testing companies in the country.

According to Reuters, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is currently investigating Millennium after several of its former employees came forward with claims about serious criminal misconduct, mafia-style intimidation tactics, and cult-like behavior taking place at the company. Though no official criminal charges have yet been filed against the company, former Millennium employees claim they were not only targeted for speaking out against the questionable sales practices of the company, but also threatened with retaliation if they dared go public with the information or even just work for a competitor.

“I took it as a complete warning and threat to not only not go to the competition, but don’t even question Millennium once you were no longer under their protection,” said Jodie Strain, a former Millennium employee who recently testified before a grand jury about her experience at the company. “It sent a very clear message not to mess with Millennium Labs,” she added.

Strain was referring, of course, to a company meeting in which Millennium executives allegedly displayed a PowerPoint presentation to a room full of more than 200 salespeople that featured a former company employee dead in a body bag. At the end of the presentation, Strain says Millennium executives ominously told the utterly astounded audience that the company could not protect anyone who veered “outside the Millennium family,” which is where the cult-like ideology took a turn for the worst.
