Drug Testing Teen

Trust, but Verify.

Teen drug use is on the rise, and powerful drugs are more accessible to teens then ever before. Kids don’t always make the right decisions, and the wrong decision with drugs can lead to addiction and even permanent brain damage.

The use of illegal drugs is increasing, especially among young teens. The average age of first marijuana use is 14, and alcohol use can start before age 12. The use of marijuana and alcohol in high school has become common.

Drug use is associated with a variety of negative consequences, including increased risk of serious drug use later in life, school failure, and poor judgment which may put teens at risk for accidents, violence, unplanned and unsafe sex, and suicide.

Testing your teen is proven to help with peer pressure. Give them an extra reason why they can’t

Why Home Testing Isn’t Recommended:

While there are a lot of over-the-counter drug tests available, there are several reasons to use a trusted third-party to drug test your teen:

  • Our employees are highly trained in collecting specimens, and are not fooled by attempts to ‘trick’ the tests.
  • Using a neutral 3rd party takes any unnecessary ‘blame’ off of the parent for positive tests.
  • Laboratory tests are the most accurate tests available to the public.

Drug-Testing Programs Influence Teen Behavior

“The Effectiveness of Mandatory-Random Student Drug Testing”

Students involved in extracurricular activities and subject to in-school random drug testing reported using drugs less often than their peers in high schools that didn’t have drug-testing programs, according to a federal evaluation of 4,700 students spread across seven states.

The study was funded by the Institute of Education Sciences, a branch of the U.S. Department of Education, and conducted by RMC Research Corp., based in Portsmouth, N.H., and Princeton, N.J.-based Mathematica Policy Research. The researchers said the study, which was posted online last month, is the largest and most rigorous examination of drug-testing programs to date.

Sixteen percent of students who were subject to drug testing in the study reported using substances covert by their district’s testing program in the previous 30 days, compared with 22 percent of similar students in schools without a drug-testing program.

But the presence of the drug-testing program did not affect students’ reported intentions to use covered substances in the future, the study shows. In the schools with drug testing, 34 percent of students reported they “definitely” or “probably” would use substances covered by their school’s drug-testing program in the next 12 months. In schools without testing, 33 percent of students reported they would definitely or probably use covered substances.

In the one-year period of the study, there was no evidence of positive spillover effects from drug testing: The same proportion of students in drug-testing schools who were not subject to the policy because they didn’t play sports or weren’t involved in extracurricular activities reported substance use as students in schools that did not conduct drug tests.
