The first indicator is the drug test temperature strip. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit will indicate a proper specimen if the temperature reads between 90 and 100 degrees. You will see a green dot appeared.

Here are before and after photos. You will see in the second photo the 92 degree dot is lighter than the others. This is important as it only took a few seconds for the temperature to drop from 98 to 92. Seeing the temperature immediately after giving the test is critical.

Teensavers Temp Strip Before Test

This is the first item that needs to be looked at after test is given.

The Teensavers temp strip after the test

Notice the 92 is slightly illuminated. This green dot gives you real-time accuracy on the temperature of the specimen. If your test does not have a green dot within seconds after taking it, a foreign substance may have been used.

Why is temperature so important?

Because it practically ensures that the specimen used in the test was from the human body at that given time.

Believe it or not, but kids buy a lot of urine. They get it from friends, and they buy it online. The hope that parents use an inexpensive foreign test found online that doesn’t detect temperature.

The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit prevents teens from substituting urine as their own.

The other trick drug users do is have a friend or sibling go before them in the toilet, and not flush. Then the teens dip the cup in the toilet and use diluted urine.

The temperature strip would catch this, as the tempertaure of the specimen decreases rapidly after voiding into the cup.

The other thing you need to look for is to make sure that2 lines are present in these tests. The first line is a control line. That line ensures that the test wasn’t adulterated.

What will teens use to adulterate a test? That answer is as easy as what do you have in the area where your child is taking the test.

Typically that’s a family bathroom.

I’ve already mentioned the toilet a a source. There’s also a bath/shower/sink faucet.

Hand soap, perfume, and eye drops are also among the substances substituted for urine.

How can you be sure your teen used only his or her urine?

There’s a reason why the Teensavers Home Drug Test is easiest to use and easiest to read.

This is a completely negative 12 panel test

2 lines indicate negatives. The first line is the “control” line which assures that the test was taken accurately with human urine and no other foreign substances. The second line indicates a negative result.

This test screens for marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, amphetamine, pcp, opiates, ecstasy, benzodiazepines, barbituates, oxycodone, methadone, and tricyclic antidepressants.

You will see the middle four drugs here are PCP, MDMA (ecstasy), BAR (barbiturates), and BZO (Benzodiazepines).

They all have two lines. They are all negative tests.

What if the line is faint? Any sign of a secondary line is a negative result.

The one thing you want to look for is a test with no lines.

That is an adulterated test, which means there is a substance that is not urine in the test cup.

You would need to rescreen your teen in the event you get a test with no lines whatsoever.

If you ever have a question before, during, or after giving the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit, please call the Teensavers Hotline at 866-728-7833. The call is confidential and free and you have access to answers 24/7.

Teensavers parent alert.

A new study is out today and it sheds light on a growing problem in our middle schools. Parents acknowledge that more kids are turning to prescription drugs.

COULD YOUR TEEN OR PRETEEN BE DIPPING INTO THE MEDICINE CABINET? DON’T BE YOUR CHILD’S DRUG DEALER. KEEP THEM CLEAN WITH THE TEENSAVERS HOME DRUG TEST KIT. HELP YOUR KIDS SAY NO TO DRUGS. CLICK HERE.

The study was a statewide survey conducted by the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey found New Jersey. It polled parents who estimate that approximately three in ten middle school students are abusing prescription or over-the-counter drugs (26%).

The PDFNJ annual Tracking Study of Parent Attitude and Behavior in Alcohol and Drug Abuse, found that about eight in ten parents feel that kids get prescription and over-the-counter drugs out of medicine cabinets, either from their own home medicine cabinet (68%) or from a friend’s medicine cabinet (11%).

Parents are taking steps to limit their child’s exposure to unused, unwanted, and expired medicine.

  • Four in ten (39%) parents have taken an inventory of their prescription and OTC medicine in the past two months, with the majority (60%) not having done so.
  • Just about one in five (17%) of parents say they have disposed of unused, unwanted, and expired medicine at a local disposal site
  • Two in five parents (44%) have disposed of their unused, unwanted and expired medicine in their household trash.
  • One in four (23%) have flushed unwanted/expired medicine down a sink or drain.
  • Just about one in ten (9%) lock their medicine cabinet.

These findings are consistent with the message of the PDFNJ’s American Medicine Chest Challenge, a statewide public health media campaign designed to raise awareness of prescription drug abuse and the steps necessary to prevent it within their home.

The study finds that the number of New Jersey parents who report having expired medicines in their home has dropped from 42% to 35%, suggesting perhaps that the campaign to safely disposed of unused, unwanted or expired medicine in home has had some effect.

A drug raid at a college campus isn’t really much of a surprise.   But seeing kids caught with a cornucopia of drugs at Texas Christian University may open a few eyes.

The bust happened Wednesday morning at campus, and all of the people arrested are current students at the school.

The busts were the result of a six month operation in which those arrested sold drugs to undercover narcotics officers.

“There is no doubt, all of those arrested today, are drug dealers,” said Steve McGee, TCU Chief of Police.

McGee also revealed that the investigation began after his department received tips from students and parents.

“This shows that TCU students, staff and the community will not tolerate this kind of behavior on the TCU campus,” said McGee.

McGee said those arrested were selling marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy in both powder and pill form, LSD and prescription drugs including Xanax, hydrocodone and other opiates similar to Oxycontin.

Some of those arrested were players on the TCU football team.   This serves as a reminder to parents that students with good grades or star athletes can become drug abusers.

You can bet that most of these kids didn’t just pick this habit up when they went off to college.   Some of them started at a younger age.    This is the time for parents to realize how much work is needed to help keep their kids drug free.

It’s as simple as conversation and home drug testing.   The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit 12-panel drug test can detect many popular drug choices.
