The San Diego Kids Fair and Expo is the premiere event for families in Southern California. Families can enjoy entertainment, rides, games, and activities.. There are also numerous exhibitors providing health and wellness information for families attending the event.

“We want people to ask us the questions that they may not be comfortable asking their pharmacist or the people that they are close with in the community,” says Teensaver Diagnostics President Steve Stahovich. “Most parents have questions about drugs and drug use, but they are afraid to ask.”

Stahovich’s experience running treatment centers led him to this passion of creating a comprehensive home drug test kit for families. “I’ve seen the heartbreak on people’s faces. They think their teen is only a recreational marijuana user, but then they find out their kid is a full blow heroin addict.”

Teensavers currently has five different home drug tests for families, ranging from a 1-panel marijuana only test, to its’ 12-panel test, the most comprehensive test on the market.

Stahovich says the key for parents is to look beyond a witch hunt for marijuana use. “When a teen is confronted about his/her drug use, they will say anything to hide their habit, which includes to confessing to being addicted to a lesser drug. I’ve seen teen heroin addicts come in to rehab, with their parents thinking the problem is marijuana or alcohol. But then we conducted the drug tests and found that the patient’s opiate levels were through the roof.”

The San Diego Kids Fair and Expo is an important event to raise awareness for hard working families. With parents working longer hours, and commuting further to and from work, children have ample time to experiment.

The Teensavers Home Drug Kits are only one of three FDA cleared for over-the-counter sales tests in America. Many of the tests found in dollar stores and on the internet are unregulated and the science behind the tests can be very unreliable. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit not only carries the strictest drug detection levels, but the kit also includes free laboratory confirmation, parental support guide, and access to assistance via a free 24/7 supported phone support hotline.

The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits are currently sold in Rite Aid and Albertson’s Stores in Southern California, and are available online on Walgreens.com, CVS.com, the Drugstore.com, Amazon.com and through the Teensavers website at http://www.myteensavers.com.

California’s lawmakers in both the house and the senate have approved a new law giving immunity to 9-1-1 callers who report an overdose.

COULD HEROIN BE YOUR CHILD’S DIRTY LITTLE SECRET? GUESSING WON’T SAVE THEIR LIFE? CLICK HERE FOR THE TOTAL SOLUTION FOR YOUR FAMILY.

Introduced by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), the bill, Assembly Bill 472 provides that neither the overdose victim nor a person who seeks emergency treatment for him shall be charged with the crime of drug possession, being under the influence of drugs, or drug possession, provided the drugs are for personal use.

Other similar “Good Samaritan” bills are on the books in nine other states.

In asking his colleagues to vote for the measure, Ammiano noted that more people die from drug overdoses than car crashes.

“This is not going soft on crime,” said Assemblyman Donald Wagner (R-Irvine). While he added that he does not condone drug use, he said it was necessary to “overlook some indiscretions for the greater good.”

“It’s critically important to save lives,” said Assemblywoman Kristen Olsen (R-Modesto). “This bill doesn’t condone drug behavior.”

Excellent work in California.

The key to remember is trying to send out the anti-drug message before teens and young adults get to the point where they are overdosing on medications.

Gil Kerlikowske, the Director of the White House’s ONDCP has written a column for the Huffington Post talking about the fight to reduce a rising trend of drug overdoses.

Four times as many people die from drugs than they did 20 years ago, and the Obama administration has spend $10 billion dollars on programs in an attempt to curb drug abuse.

The problem is painkillers.

People are addicted to them. Kids pop them like candy.

Kerlikowske also alerts people to the fact that August 31st is International Overdose Awareness Day.

If people can start learning about the severity of the problem, we can start solving it.

Students aren’t afraid to talk about their choices to use alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs.

Nearly 7% of high schoolers abuse one of the three substances during the school day, according to Columbia University’s National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse.

Their peers aren’t surprise. 86% of teens polled in a phone interview said they know a classmate that’s abusing drugs during the day.

The findings were released in the center’s annual back to school survey.

 

Nearly half the students say they know someone who deals drugs at school, and 6 out of 10 say that drugs are easy to obtain on campus.

The top four drugs commonly abused according to the survey were marijuana, prescription drugs, cocaine, and ecstasy.

Peer Pressure is a big factor.

The survey indicates that more teens are seeing imagery, thanks to social media, that entices them to drink. The teens say they are encouraged to party after seeing photos and videos of classmates drinking, high, or passed out.

This is a reason why parents need to be as involved in their child’s social media, as their child is. Kids do not fear posting comments about alcohol or marijuana on facebook or twitter.

It’s everywhere.

And parents who think this problem is pervasive in the public school system better open their eyes.

The survey indicates that private schools also have a massive drug problem, and it is rising dramatically.

In 2011, 36% of private school students said their school was “drug-infected.”

Fast forward a year, and that figure is now 54%, a 50-percent gain year to year.

Teen drug use appears to be a very obvious case of monkey see, monkey do.

Teens are more likely to use drugs when their parents either use, or are laid back regarding drugs, tobacco, and alcohol.

Teens who say they’ve been left alone overnight – almost 30% of those surveyed – are about twice as likely to have used alcohol or marijuana and almost three times more likely to have tried tobacco than teens who’ve never been left alone at night.

If there ever was a time for parents to get more involved with their teens, now is that time.

Parents need to be aware of what their children are doing.

They also have access to tools like the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit that can help detect this drug use.

Catching it early, can make the difference between teens who experiment, and teens who become addicts.

Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid will lay his son Garrett to rest today in Pennsylvania.

The 29 year old eldest son of Coach Reid died at Eagles training camp earlier this week. While an official cause of death has not been released, Coach Reid has alluded to the fact that the death appears to be the final chapter in his son’s battle with drugs.

The Reid’s released this statement:

“On behalf of Tammy and our family, I would like to thank everybody for their tremendous support, love, kind words and prayers during this time of great sadness. Words cannot express our sense of loss.

“We loved Garrett so much. He was a wonderful son and brother. He made us laugh, he was a pleasure to be around, he always had a smile on his face, and we will miss him dearly. We will never forget him, and we will remember him with love.

“Garrett’s road through life was not always an easy one. He faced tremendous personal challenges with bravery and spirit. As a family, we stood by him and were inspired as he worked to overcome those challenges. Even though he lost the battle that has been ongoing for the last eight years, we will always remember him as a fighter who had a huge, loving heart.

“I spoke with the team yesterday and thanked them for their thoughts and prayers. I asked them to continue with their preparations for the upcoming season until I am ready to rejoin the team.

“It is in times like these that we lean on our faith, our family, our friends, and our Eagles family. We will do so in the difficult times ahead.

“Thank you again for your continued support.”

The Teensavers Team’s hearts go out to the Reid family.
