Many parents consider home drug testing, but they have no idea what they are, how to use them, what they detect, or which brand to buy.
Home drug tests are either saliva, urine, or hair based.

You wouldn’t want to use a saliva problem, because one it wouldn’t detect marijuana at all, and two the government doesn’t consider them as a single effective means of testing. In fact the government advises a back up urine sample be taken when someone is using an oral test.

The the most common test on the market is a UA, urine immunoassay test. But not all tests are alike. There are MANY cheap products online and in discount stores. Only buy your drug test from a brick and mortar pharmacy/supermarket like Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreen, Target, Walmart, Albertsons, Savon, or online from one of those retailer’s online pharmacies. Drugstore.com is an excellent choice as are CVS.com and Walgreens.com. Buying online provides you with privacy. There are only four products approved by the FDA for over the counter sales in stores.

Hair testing is good at detecting a history of drug use, but it is very costly, and will miss recent drug use.  You’ll know what happened 6 months ago, but you won’t know what happened six hours ago.

Home Drug Test Kits, like the Teensavers test require about 30 ml of a sample.

The Teensaver test is the only test sold over-the-counter that is made in America.

The results are instant.
