Methadone isn’t talked about much.   But a new in depth article from Time Magazine is revealing a disturbing trend.


While it only accounts for 2% of all prescriptions, it accounts for nearly 33% of all overdoses.

New information into the mysterious death of a 10-year-old Omaha boy that occurred last April.

Police now say that the boy died from a powerful combination of prescription drugs.

Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine says an autopsy shows Shykell Robinson died from an overdose of four drugs — methadone, oxycodone, lorazepam and haloperidol.

Authorities haven’t figured out how the boy got the drugs. No arrests have been made in connection with the case.

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.

A 12 panel test screens for the following drugs:

  • marijuana
  • pcp
  • cocaine
  • opiates
  • Amphetamines
  • Methamphetamine
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Ecstasy (MDMA)
  • Methadone
  • Oxycodone
  • Tricyclic Antidepressants

New statistics released this week from SAMHSA, show that a majority of college treatment admissions are for alcohol and not drugs.

College students had lower rates of treatment admissions than nonstudents their age for other types of primary substance abuse such as:

·         Heroin – 7.2 percent for college students versus 16.1 percent for nonstudents

·         Other opiates– 8.3 percent for college students versus 10.5 percent for nonstudents

·         Cocaine – 1.9 percent for college students versus 4.2 percent for nonstudents

·         Methamphetamine – 1 percent for college students versus 4.4 percent for nonstudents


A quick look at the report summary can be viewed HERE.

The scary thing is that a combined 23% of young adults have used heroin.    And the opiate numbers are close at nearly 19% of all college-aged children.

Chances are, these kids did not start using in college.   Some of this drug use has carried over from experimentation in high school.   Parents can’t let their children build up these experimentation habits in high school.  By the time they get to college or move out on their own, they have a constant supplier and they have the freedom to use in their dorm or apartments without parental supervision.

Parents have a tool they can use.    The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits scan for all of the drugs mentioned above.   A 12-panel test is the comprehensive test for your family that tests for marijuana, cocaine, opiates, oxycodone, methamphetamine, amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiaepines, methadone, PCP, MDMA (ecstasy), and tricyclic antidepressants.   Click on the box to get a Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits.

A warning to parents about this upcoming weekend.   The famed, or
infamous Electric Daisy Carnival or EDC is in Las Vegas this weekend for
a mammoth episode of music and drug use.   This is the same event that
used to be at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum until a young girl
died.    The 15 year old should not have been at the 18 and over event,
but many officials agree that underage concert goers have little
difficult getting into the event.

This year the event takes place
at the Las Vegas motor speedway.   It also comes one week after a
19-year-old died at an EDC event in Dallas last week.   If you are a
parent and you want an indication of how popular this event is, try
booking a room at a lower end hotel on the strip.   A room at the
Excalibur or MGM, which typically can be had for less than $100 dollars,
is going for upwards of $500 this weekend.

This is an event
fueled with drug induced attendees.   Some of the concert goers are
responsible, and the promoters attempt to halt any drug use, but this
event can be dangerous.    In addition to teens taking drugs on their
own, there is also a possibility that teens could be slipped some sort
of drug.

If you are an active parent, make sure you teen is far
away from Vegas this weekend.   This event is not just another music
festival.  This event is widely known as a hotspot for drug use.

your teen is attending this event, or near the Las Vegas area, you may
want to think about using a Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.   The kits
can detect drug use as long as 96 hours after the drug consumption.
Opiates and Ecstasy (MDMA) are prominently used at this event.   A
Teensavers 12-panel test covers these drugs plus marijuana, cocaine,
PCP, Methamphetamine, Amphetamines, Methodone, Oxycodone, TriCyclic
Antidepressants, Barbiturates, and Benzodiazepines.





A new study SAMHSA study shines a light on the rising abuse of pills specifically Benzodiazepines.

are a class of central nervous system depressant drugs that are
commonly prescribed for anxiety, insomnia, and seizure disorders.1
They were introduced in the late 1950s to replace barbiturates and
other drugs that often had unwanted side effects, including a high
addiction potential. It was not until almost 30 years later that the
potential of benzodiazepines for abuse and dependence was recognized.

are often abused in combination with alcohol or other drugs
(particularly opiates) to enhance or lengthen the high provided by the
other substances or to offset their adverse effects. However, the abuse of benzodiazepines in combination with other substances can have severe and sometimes fatal consequences.

the 10 year growth of usage seems small, the indicators that more
people are being treated for abusing the pills is alarming.

Parenting Coach, Tim Chapman, says the report is consistent with what
he’s seeing in his patients.  “With the rise in the marijuana culture
because of medicinal marijuana, parents have focused on marijuana
usage.   But the real danger, that typically goes unmentioned, are
prescription drugs.   Children have no problem experimenting with pills
like Xanax and Valuium.     Unfortunately, especially when it comes to
the opiates, as soon as the pills run out, users turn to heroin and
other street drugs.”

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
(SAMHSA) study found that admissions for treatment of benzodiazepine
abuse among patients 12 and older rose from 22,400 in 1998 to 60,200 a
decade later. Benzodiazepine-related admissions accounted for 3.2
percent of all substance abuse admissions in 2008, compared with 1.3
percent in 1998.

The report also highlights that almost all
benzodiazepine admissions (95 percent) reported abuse of another
substance in addition to abuse of benzodiazepines: 82.1 percent reported
primary abuse of another substance with secondary abuse of
benzodiazepines, and 12.9 percent reported primary abuse of
benzodiazepines with secondary abuse of another substance.

A  comprehensive 12-panel Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit screens for
Benzodiaepines, along with opiates, marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, PCP,
Amphetamines, Methamphetamine, Barbiturates, Methodone, Oxycodone, and
Tricyclic Antidepressants.
