Teensavers Diagnostics Inc. is proud to announce that CVS Pharmacy and has added the entire family of Teensavers® Home Drug Test Kits.


“ and the CVS/Caremark family are absolute leaders in the home health care industry.    Families rely on the CVS family for every day products and life saving prescriptions.    We value the support that has shown the Teensavers® family, including our family branded drug tests in their diagnostics category.   We share the importance and enthusiasm for families looking to lead a healthy life,” said Teensavers Diagnostics Inc. President Steve Stahovich.

Teensavers Diagnostics Inc. created the Teensavers® Home Drug Test Kits with the family in mind.   Government statistics show that 4,000 teens try drugs for the first time every day.   2,500 of those kids are experimenting with pills.    Many parents are seeing the explosion of teen prescription drug use in our community.    But they don’t know what to do about it.    The Teensavers® Home Drug Test Kits can help detect possible opiate use.    It can help deter kids from taking pills, prescribed for a legitimate patient, from the medicine cabinet to use recreationally.

“We are proud that parents can find our total family solution, from the same chain where they are getting their prescriptions.    Just as any health ailment requires immediate attention, potential teen substance abuse requires the same immediate attention and care.   Teensavers® Home Drug Test Kits provide more than a positive or negative result.   Our complete kit helps parents understand through the entire process, whether it’s diagnosing the drug use, or finding the best solution for your family,” said Stahovich.

There are five different Teensavers® Home Drug Test Kits available on ranging from a 1-panel (THC only) test to a comprehensive 12-panel test.     The prices range from $16.99 to $29.99.

Stahovich says choosing the right test is based on alert and informed parenting.    Stahovich says, “Choosing the right drug test kit not only depends on your family and the child’s exposure to drugs, but the drug culture of the community.    It is critical for parents to be proactive by talking with other parents in the neighborhood, finding out about drug issues in the schools, and within the community.   Some communities have marijuana and cocaine problems.    We are seeing an explosion of prescription drug abuse across most of the country.   Parents may want complete tests for popular pills.     Proper home drug testing involves pro-active parenting”

The Teensavers® Home Drug Test Kit is 99.9% accurate, made in America, and approved for over-the-counter use by the FDA. The test is endorsed by America’s Parenting Coach, Tim Chapman, a 30-year treatment veteran.   The Teensavers® Home Drug Test Kit was recently named a 2011 “Top Products” Winner by Parent Tested, Parent Approved, one of the most reliable and valuable online resources for parents.

We know there are many questions parents have when it comes to home drug tests.

How do they work?

Are they reliable?

What drugs do they test for?

There is a comprehensive website, with written parental guidance from America’s Parenting Coach, Tim Chapman.    He helps parents with how they can calmly address their kids about the drug test, without a fight, or accusations.

The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is the work of long time treatment professional Steve Stahovich, a former teen drug addict, who turned his life around and began treating patients around the world.   The Teensavers cup provides the best combination of drug screens based on what parents asked him for.   Unlike 90% of the products sold online, the Teensavers Cup is made in the USA, and is approved for sales to families.    Believe it or not, many of these companies prey on distraught parents using tests that are forensic use only.    The either sell families cups, made for businesses only, or they sell you cups made in China.   Those cups are worthless.

Myteensavers is your source for drug testing information.     If you are looking for a drug cup, buy the brand that is made for families by a family company.

In trying to deliver the message that drugs are all around our children, in our schools, and infiltrated within our community, Teensavers find many who refuse to believe substance abuse could affect their family.


Celebrities are certainly highlighting that substance abuse remains prevalent in society.

According to TMZ, Demi Moore is the latest celebrity to have a substance related health crisis.   Showing photos of Moore’s daughter Rumer pacing outside the hospital, TMZ reports that paramedics took Moore to the hospital Monday night.   TMZ’s latest report is that Moore is seeking professional assistance for her ailments.

Another Demi, who has already battled drug problems, Demi Lovato, could be headed back to rehab again.   Online gossip writer Perez Hilton originally reported that Lovato may have a hidden cocaine problem.   But in an online exclusive, Hilton says that Lovato’s reps told him, ““The story was fabricated. It is completely untrue.”

Thankfully, it appears Lovato is on the straight and narrow after getting her life back on track.

These two stories follow the Heather Locklear saga.   The actress also was hospitalized recently after a frantic 9-1-1 call.   TMZ reported that Locklear left the hospital in this story.   The rumor mill surrounding Locklear’s hospitalization was that the actress and a dangerous mixture of alcohol and pills in her system.   Of course, nobody with Locklear’s camp has confirmed this.

It’s tragic to see anyone battle substance abuse.   Unfortunately, the celebrities who do have issues, are glamorized by internet sites.   Maybe we need more celebrities to come out and warn kids about the dangers of drugs.   Children look up to these celebrities and maybe their anti-drug message could help keep kids off of drugs.

Melissa Gilbert openly discussed how drugs ravaged her family when she joined up with the     It was refreshing to hear her reveal that, as a parent, she had little idea her children could be using.   You can read an online interview from Gilbert here.

Came across a wonderful story out of Olive Hill, Kentucky from WSAZ.


Kids actually were supporting a program that advocates drug testing in school and in the home. And for those who participate by being tested at school, or having their parents test them, the kids receive a t-shirt that they can proudly wear that says “Screened and Clean.”

Here’s what the students had to say:

“If there’s a party and kids are tempted to do drugs, and the parents might test them when they get home, they’ll think twice,” –student Morgan McGlone

“It will help the relationship between parents and kids. Because too many kids think they can get away with it – and they shouldn’t get away with it.” –student Sarah Crum

“If the parents are using drugs, I would say, ‘If you test me, then I should be able to test you,’ so it’s fair for one or the other,” –student Kansas Cox

We often encounter resistance about home drug testing, and many times, it’s the parents making up the most excuses. On top of it, they rarely discuss drugs and the anti-drug message at home with their children. It’s one of the leading reasons why 2,500 children try drugs for the first time every day.

This screen and clean program sets a great example, and like one student said, if the popular kids are wearing the shirts, maybe more kids will want to hop on the bandwagon!

Medical Marijuana is quite popular in California. People brag about having their cards, and the marijuana culture, especially in Southern California, is quite prevalent. Legality aside, the big problem is when the marijuana gets into the hands of teenagers.


The Irvine Police Department watched this go down first hand this week. A 19-year old woman walked into a Costa Mesa dispensary, ordered up her medicine, and walked out the door. But she didn’t go home to have her medicine. She made a couple of pit stops first.

Detectives say she first stopped and sold the marijuana to two adults in Irvine, before meeting a teenager at a gas station to sell him some of her supply. The detectives swooped in and arrested Yvette Ordaz, seen below (Source: Irvine Police Department Press Release.)

Now, here’s where readers need to not come unglued. These following statements are not about adults who have a legal right to use dispensaries for marijuana. These statements are about children getting their hands on pot.

The State of California should make the penalties stiffer for sharing medicinal marijuana, especially when the recipient is a minor. California voters authorized medicinal marijuana, and for the users abiding by the legal limitations have the right to smoke it privately. But approval for medical marijuana was not an authorization for teenagers to have a frequent supply of marijuana delivered to them.

Kids should not have this kind of access to drugs. Thankfully, someone tipped the police off to these drug deals. A drug dealer is a drug dealer is a drug dealer.

We are reaching out to our readers, followers, and friends. In the days of the Like button, retweets, and forwarding to our friends, we could use a helping hand.

We put this information out because of our determination to keep kids and their families drug-free. Teensavers founder Steve Stahovich has a long history of performing interventions and treating families and patients across the globe.

His mission is to eliminate the pain for families similar to the pain he caused his family as an addict. Steve battled addiction before getting help. Once clean, he set a new goal of helping people. He spent years running the largest treatment center in the country. There, he consulted families about the drug addict in their lives. Many times, they asked him how they could have prevented these teen addictions.

Steve created the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit to help families privately address their suspicions. The test is a tool that can be used in the home, and just having the box on the counter can make kids think twice about ever trying drugs.

Steve’s drive isn’t to get rich selling drug tests. His purpose is to educate families about what lurks in their schools and communities. Too many parents are naive about the drug cultures around their kids. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits don’t test for bath salts, but again, it’s not about the almighty dollar. He is insistent that we alert parents about these toxic chemicals that can kill our kids on the first try.

He is passionate about the surging prescription abuse problem. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit has comprehensive screens for opiates, Benzodiazepines, Barbiturates, and Oxycodone.

It’s bad enough that kids are using bath salts and incense to get high.    They get around using marijuana, by using products that act as synthetic marijuana.    As strange as it sounds, death may not be the scariest possibilty for teens using these products.   But throw in the fact that they might get the flesh eating bacteria, and that may scare them a lot more.  

It doesn’t make much sense, but the imagery is effective.  

Think about the meth campaign that surfaced recently.

Ugliness and disfiguration somehow sound the alarm in most teens’ heads, even louder than the alarm that something could kill them.     Parents should take notice of the signs.   If somehow their child develops a staff infection on the skin, the may have a good indicator as to where it came from.      

GMA’s Health Day did a story on the link.  You can see it here:

This is what they found:

So-called bath salts are sold as synthetic powders that “often contain various amphetamine-like chemicals,” according to the U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse, which in February warned that injections might cause the ravaging skin condition.

Study authors Dr. Russell R. Russo, a third-year orthopedic surgery resident at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center New Orleans School of Medicine, and colleagues, saw the effects firsthand.

They treated a 34-year-old woman who developed forearm pain and redness after she attended a party. She didn’t have any other symptoms but did have a small red puncture wound on her arm. The woman eventually admitted that she injected bath salts two days before her symptoms began.

Most kids are not injecting the salts, but smoking them.   But it shows how the chemicals can go to work in a negative way when ingested.

It’s another thing that parents and children need to know and talk about.    Many kids will experiment with drugs, but if parents can educate their kids on the severe risks of these products, they might stop them from every trying them.

Parents are starting to see the effects of drug abuse on the community. More teens are experimenting with heroin, and many others are becoming hooked on pills.

For years, parents didn’t have a weapon to detect this abuse. But now there are home drug tests that can help parents in a time of need. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is a reliable and valuable resource against teen drug use.

For 33 years, Doc’s Drugs has been serving the suburbs outside Chicago. Family owned, Doc’s Drugs has been a dependable choice for Illinois families. Doc’s Drugs is now offering the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits for families to ensure that their children remain drug free. Talk to your Doc’s pharmacist about which drug test is right for your family. Teensavers Tests range from a 1-panel kit that screen for marijuana, all the way to a comprehensive kit that screens for 12-drugs. With today’s fascination with pills, parents cannot afford to guess by smelling their kids for drugs, or checking their eyeballs come curfew time.

Don’t guess. Home drug test with Teensavers, available at Doc’s Drugs.

It’s amazing the range of parenting we see, when it comes to handling teen drug use.   Many parents refuse to discuss the issue of drugs at all with their kids.  Their message is too simple, “Don’t do drugs!”


But kids need to know what damage drugs can do, and how drugs drastically change people’s lives for the worse.

One mom was tired of her 14-year-old’s drug use.    He had been to court several times for selling drugs.   The court continually sentences him to probation and orders him to pay money.   Well that’s not good enough for Dynesha Lax.

She’s making her son stand on a corner in their neighborhood wearing a sign that says, “I steal. I lie. I sell drugs.  I don’t follow the law.”

You can see the story here on Fox59 in Indiana.   Just click <a href=”,0,4485979.column”>HERE</a>.

And her response to her critics, “”What else more can I do? They put him on probation and when they did probation they were quick to talk about the $300 you have to pay in fees, but nobody’s trying to help me fix my son,” said Lax.”

The message here is simple.  For those who think that home drug testing is a crazy idea, you may want to think twice.   Kids are experimenting in larger numbers and at a younger age.

Don’t wait until there’s a full blown problem.


If you don’t live in New York, it’s quite possible that you’ve never heard of Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.


But Schneiderman has become the biggest force against prescription drug abuse in 2012. He issued a 42-page report that documents the year-to-year increase in the number of hydrocodone and oxycodone prescriptions being written in New York State, as well as prescription drug-related addiction and death.

Among the highlights of the report cited by

• There were enough prescription painkillers prescribed in the United States in 2010 to medicate every American adult round-the-clock for a month. In New York State, the number of prescriptions for all narcotic painkillers increased from 16.6 million in 2007 to 22.4 million in 2010.

• The number of prescriptions issued in the state for hydrocodone increased by 16.7 percent from 2007 to 2010. The number of oxycodone prescriptions during that period increased by 82 percent. Both drugs are opioid painkillers, with oxycodone being much stronger than hydrocodone.

• Hospital admissions on Long Island for prescription drug addiction increased by 57 percent in Nassau County and by 40 percent in Suffolk County from 2007 to 2010.

• In Buffalo area hospitals, more people are being admitted for prescription narcotics abuse than for cocaine or heroin.

• In New York City, the special narcotics prosecutor’s caseload involving prescription drug cases increased from 6% in 2007, to 15 percent in 2010. That office also reported that the black market prescription drug trade is becoming increasingly violent.

This is the shift seen across America.
