The Drug Enforcement Agency this week announced that it has collected more than two million pounds of unused, unwanted, and expired prescription drugs, thanks to its National Drug Take Back Day.

The agency, and numerous branches of law enforcement, health, and civic groups across the country helped collect the pills over the last two years.

The most recent drug take back day amounted in a half a million pounds of prescription drugs.

We are grateful that community members come together to dispose of these pills.

Statistics show that millions of people are hooked on pills, and many of them get those pills from friends and loved ones.

2,500 children begin abusing prescription drugs daily, and that’s a number and a trend that we need to reverse.

The Teensavers team had heard about “Overtaken,” a movie produced by two Orange County moms, but we hadn’t had a chance to see it until now.

The driving force behind the film are Jodi Barber and Christine Brant.

Jodi lost her son Jarrod to a powerful drug cocktail. He died on the couch while watching a movie. His friends thought he was sleeping.

Overtaken is a movie that can open the eyes of children and parents, as these first-hand accounts of these survivors will show you that drugs can affect any family.

You can watch the movie on the production company’s website by clicking HERE.

If you want to know who is making the effort to save lives not only in Orange County, but across the country, look no further than these two women.

Our growing pill problem is getting so out of hand, that a mother had to turn her own son into police.

This wasn’t a middle aged woman turning in her adult son for the crime.

Police say the alleged pill thief is only 13-years-old.

They say that the young boy took her anti-anxiety pills.

According to West Virginia’s Metro News, the boy was not home when authorities answered the woman’s call.

But a short time later a neighbor reported a break in and a burglary of pills.

Shortly after that burglary, the boy stumbled into the bushes.

The authorities say the boy was unable to run in a straight line because of the effects of the pills.

COULD YOUR TEEN BE ABUSING PRESCRIPTION DRUGS? DON’T GUESS! TEENSAVERS HOME DRUG TEST KITS WILL GIVE YOU ANSWERS AND PEACE OF MIND IN THREE MINUTES.

The boy is now facing charges in juvenile court.

West Virginia, like many other states, has been plagued by prescription drug abuse.

And as tough as it is for a mother to turn her son over to authorities, this may help the boy overcome his desire to use pills.

Parents cannot sit back and think that the pill problem in this country won’t take hold of their child.

More kids are trying prescription drugs because they are deemed “legal drugs.”

Teensavers family of home drug test kits can help detect the most popular illicit drugs.

The creators of the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits have been warning parents for quite some time, that there’s a simple three step process from you being loose about pills at home, to your teen becoming a heroin addict.

Step 1: You leave unattended pills at the home.

Step 2: You son or daughter polish them off, creating an opiate addiction.

Step 3: Pills are too expensive and too hard to find, so your loved one moves onto heroin, a much cheaper and purer high.

Think that it’s too outrageous to happen to your loved one? Talk to the parent of a heroin addict. It all starts the same way. Very few people decide one day, I’m going to try heroin. Heroin is a need that typically derives from an opiate addiction.

MSNBC is bringing attention to a problem that treatment specialists, counselors, and regular American families have been coping with for years.

Teensavers often reminds families that unused medications in the home can be a recipe for disaster.

Many times teens and young adults in treatment tell us that is where they got their start.

Their first experience from drugs wasn’t the puff of marijuana from a friend, it was a sneak of a pill from the family medicine cabinet.

But it’s not just your teens you have to worry about.

Some of those patients in treatment also say that they stole pills from their friends’ medicine cabinets. They had no problem checking all of their buddies homes for extra pills.

Now there’s a growing problem in a small Texas community. People are visiting opening houses to search for drugs.

The pain pill addicts are scouring the Sunday paper for open houses dressing up as potential buyers, and then showing up hoping to score.

These pills are like gold. Some of them go for as much as $50 a pill. If you find full bottle of Oxycontin or Hydrocodone, you could be looking at a street value of $5000.

And while children may not be stealing these pills, the pills stolen by adults could still end up in their hands.

The same thing may be said for having guests at the home.

With a dinner party or social event at your home, you have dozens of people using your bathrooms. So why keep your pills there?

People with an addiction will first try to find either money or more drugs through people they know and trust.

It’s always a reminder to hide your medications, or lock them up.

You’d certainly hide your jewelery during an open house.

Take 5 minutes to place your pills safely away from where they can be stolen.

For whatever reason, that also seems really unexplainable, parents do not or will not talk about drug use with their kids.   Many of them think that the anti-drinking and anti-drug message is implied.

We all know that isn’t the case.

Kids probably hear and see a few dozen instances of drinking and drug use being glorified to every one message that reiterates the harm and dangers of drugs.

Kids see drinking and drugs in movies, television shows, and can hear about it in music.   They also hear about it socially.   Monday morning high school chatter typically consists of the weekend high school football game, and which teen had thrown up after a severe night of partying.

High schoolers know who the partiers are.    The drinking, smoking, and drug use is often glamorized by the “popular” teens.    Rappers tout their marijuana use, and  celebrities celebrate their pill addictions.    Despite the fact that drugs have claimed the lives of numerous actors and singers, the drug use is still glamorized.

Kids now have the ability to glamorize it through YouTube pages, FaceBook accounts, blogs, and other social media that allows them to post photos and information anonymously.      Foolishly, some kids even post the photos and video of themselves acting silly drinking too much or using drugs.   Here are just a few winners pulled off of eBay.   (Disclaimer, people seen in the videos below may not be minors — but are being used to show the typical behavior described above)

Chances are the people seen in these videos were 18 or older, but they may not have been 21.    Those kids talking about the one teen’s marijuana use looked to be high schoolers.  

Parents can learn from these videos.   Obviously, when they are posted anonymously, it’s hard to find them.   But checking your teen’s facebook, myspace, or mobile phone for photos or references to drug use could help parents.

Stumbling onto experimentation before it becomes addiction is critical to helping a teen witha drug problem.  

Another way you can detect teen drug use is to use home drug test kits.   The newest test on the market is the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit. 

The Test is available at through many trusted retailers.       All 5 Teensavers Home Drug Tests, including the 12-panel which detects marijuana, cocaine, PCP, ecstasy, opiates, Benzodiazepines, Barbiturates, Amphetamines, Methamphetamine, Methadone, Oxycodone, and TCA’s are currently on SALE at CVS.com.   The 5 teests can also be bought at Amazon.com,  and the Drugstore.com.   Walgreens customers can get 1-panel 3-panel 7-panel or 12-panel tests at Walgreens.com.
