It’s Friday night.

Teens across America are getting ready for Friday night favorites including, high school football, movies, hanging out at the mall-o-plaza, and trying drugs for the first time.

More than 6,000 kids try drugs for the first time every day.

HAS YOUR TEEN TRIED DRUGS? YOU CAN’T GUESS OR SEE IT WITH YOUR EYES. TEENSAVERS CREATED THE TEST FOR YOUR FAMILY TO DETECT DRUG USE AND DETER TEENS FROM EXPERIMENTING. CLICK HERE TO READ ABOUT THE TEENSAVERS HOME DRUG TEST KIT.

That’s nearly 20,000 new users by the end of the weekend, and that’s not counting alcohol use for the first time by teens and pre-teens.

That also doesn’t even take into consideration the people who try synthetics, because they are not classified as drugs by the FDA. So kids using spice or bath salts tonight are not among the 6,000.

Some kids will experiment with marijuana. It may be the first time they hold a joint in their hands, or put a bong to their lips.

Others think they will experiment safely with “legal medications” while attending a pharming party. That’s where kids bring unidentified pills and throw them in a bowl. Everyone reaches in and takes whatever they get.

Parents need to remember that this first time behaviors are not limited to Friday and Saturday nights.

The average number of kids who try drugs daily is 6,000. In the summer months that number nearly doubles to 11,000.

It’s time we all talk to our kids before they leave the house, and fully understand their plans for the evening. Sleepovers should be double checked.

And when our kids come home at their curfew, we need to engage them to make sure they are coherent and acting normally.

Kids hiding drug use won’t break their curfews because they know they will be questioned more than if they came home on time.

There are countless numbers of teens who come home early on a Friday and Saturday night and tell their parents that they were tired, and wanted to go to bed. Many of them were hiding the fact that they were under the influence.

Our children are precious, and we need to make sure that they stay safe every night of the week.

Don’t lose your teen to drug use.

Addiction isn’t like a a problem with your a tire on your car.

When you have a flat, you simply replace the tire and never look back.

But solving problems of the mind and body, when it comes to addiction, are not that easy.

Addiction is a lifelong battle. It’s understanding choices and decisions, and trying to spend every last ounce of willpower fighting off a craving.

While most people raise their kids, rarely considering what life would be like if their kids were addicts, one family shares their struggles in a recent “Ask Amy” column, syndicated by the Chicago Tribune.

You can read and empathize with their pain by clicking on this link for the article.

When it comes to the health of your children, your family wants a home drug test kit you can trust.

After all, our kids mean everything to us.

The Teensavers is not only 99% accurate, but it is one of only four home drug test kits approved by the FDA for over-the-counter sales.

Why is this important?

-Ease of Use: The FDA only approves tests for OTC when those products give parents proper step by step instructions on how to administer the tests properly. Cheap tests found online or in dollar stores are messy and can be confusing to use, and confusing to read.

-Zero Tolerance Cutoff Levels: Cheap tests have drug levels that vary widely. Testing for drugs is difficult when the detection levels are so high, you’d have to be practically overdosing to register. For example, THC levels set by the government for testing are at 2,000 nanograms. Manufacturers are allowed a +/- 50% range, which means you could be testing your child for THC and the test you use is actually set at 3,000 nanograms. The Teensavers cutoff levels are the most strict. The cutoff level for THC in the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is 50 nanograms.

Accuracy: In addition to having very tolerant cutoff levels, imported home drug test kits can often give you a wide range of cutoff levels. Within the same batch, you might find THC levels ranging from cup to cup from 1,000 to 3,000. Each Teensavers Home Drug Test kit is 50 nanograms. There is no spectrum of tests. It’s correct science and the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is Made in America!

-The Next Step Towards Finding a Solution: Cheap tests don’t provide you with the next step if your son or daughter’s drug test shows a presumptive positive. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit includes a free lab confirmation kit. You know which opiates your teen test positive for. You know how high the nanogram count is for each specific drug. And it will help you understand the next step for your child.

Beware of products that you find for cheap on eBay from sellers who can’t answer your questions. Watch out for online sites with a large inventory of different tests and products. You often find the same products selling cheap drug tests, also sell masking agents for people to hide their drug use. Don’t dive in for the cheap test at your neighborhood discount chain or dollar store. Those products are often close to expiration and typically cheap imported products.

Buying and using a home drug test kit can be a difficult decision for your family.

No family wants to see a preliminary positive result, but if they do get one, they know they have a chance of correcting the problem before it is too late. This is key!

What good is getting a false negative? You don’t want to think that your teen is drug-free when they are using semi-regularly. That’s the important of buying a reliable and accurate product like the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.

Here are the cutoff levels and codes for drugs tested in a Teensavers 12-panel Home Drug Test Kit.

Marijuana (THC) 50 ng/mL

Cocaine (COC) 300 ng/mL

Pharmacists and pharmacies are often the link to families for health information and reliable products. Consumers may read about products or hear about them from friends and loved ones, but it’s the pharmacists that can verify, educate, and ease the minds of shoppers.

Teensavers is constantly reminding families about drug use and how teen abuse can tear a family apart. Here is a story out of Charlotte that is a tragic reminder.

A violent encounter between a 20-year old man and his 63 year-old father left the son lying dead beneath a tree with a gunshot to the chest and the father behind bars on murder charges.

Authorities are trying to sort out what led up to the deadly shooting. The elder man, Earnest Gurley called 9-1-1 before 9:00a, telling operators that he had just shot his son.

Another family member told the Charlotte Observer that the two had a long run fights and disagreements about drugs and thefts. The relative revealed that Benjamin Gurley had a drug problem that was worse than marijuana.

If this latest and deadliest encounter was drug related, it shows how the drug use by the younger Gurley destroyed two lives and damaged several others.

This is a common scenario when teens begin abusing drugs. When they cannot afford the drugs but are addicted, they resort to stealing from family and friends. Drug addicts will steal anything from anybody if they can use the property for their next high.

Parents need to have frequent conversations with their children about the dangers of drugs. Drug use can destroy a family, whether it’s a teen chronic marijuana smoker or a parent abusing prescription drugs.

Families need to unite and make it a mission to be a drug free family.

Illinois’ Stevenson High in Lincolnshire has made dubious headlines for a drug bust involving students.   But the sheer volume of people involved is just as alarming in the lack of support parents are showing the school.      An investigation spanned several months, and it involved confiscating cell phones.   That provided detectives with electronic drug deals conducted during school hours.   While it appears very little to no physical drug exchanges took place on campus,  the investigation ended in the arrests of two students.  It appears dozens more students were suspended as a result of the investigation.

So where was the parent outrage?

UNFAMILIAR WITH THE CODE NAMES THAT KIDS USE FOR DRUGS?  WE HAVE A GLOSSARY FOR YOU AND THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR TEEN.   JUST CLICK HERE!

It appears there was no outrage at a school board meeting on Monday night, where WGN-TV reported that only two parents showed up.    For a school of 4,000 students, with dozens suspended, just two parents bothered to find out what was going on.  This was the first public meeting where parents could hear the details and findings of the investigation.    Were there private meetings between school officials and the parents of those suspended?    Possibly.  It’s pretty clear that the parents of the two arrested students probably had a good face to face with detectives.

It appears that the “not my kid” mindset has reared its ugly head.   You know.  You tell parents that 9 out of 10 kids will do something bad once in their lives, and they respond, “not my kid!”   Well I guess those parents at Stevenson High are getting a reality check.     The truth is 4,000 kids try drugs every day for the first time.   Some of these kids are as young as 8-years-old.   And among those 4,000 kids, 2,500 of them abuse prescription drugs.   That’s 2,500 kids who may be fueling their drug habit for free via the family medicine cabinet.   Understand that mom and dad?   You are your child’s drug dealer.    Your denial is enabling their habit.     Refusing to discuss drugs with your children is a big mistake.   And you really could head things off at the pass by using home drug tests.

Parents need to stay informed, and two people showing up out of 4,000 students is ridiculous.   How long are we going to bury our heads in the sand?  How long can we ignore this problem?  Kids like marijuana.  Kids like pills.  Kids are using designer drugs.   Kids are using synthetic drugs.   This is real folks.
