Tis the season to be shopping.

Walgreens.com is offering the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit at a discounted price, and now may be the best time to pick up a drug test for your teen.

Buying a drug test doesn’t mean that you ever have to use it.

But having one on hand may be a determining factor if your teen ever tries drugs. Having a Teensavers Kit at home arms parents with knowledge and kids with an excuse.

Parents empower their teens to say “I can’t try drugs. My parents drug test me.”

We recommend a 7-panel for families as it is the best arrangement of drug screens based on treatment trends.

The 7-panel incorporates the best combination of illicit drugs and prescription drugs being abused by teens.

Whether their habit is just pot, or has ballooned into harder drugs like cocaine, meth, or ecstasy, or they are abusing prescription drugs thinking they are “legal medicines,” you are covered.

The nation is seeing a spike in prescription drug overdoses, and heroin use is exploding because opiate addicts are running out of pills and the money to pay for them.

With marijuana now legal in two states, kids have more access to marijuana.

We have talked many times about parents relying on the smell test at the end of a Friday or Saturday night.

They encounter their teen as their teen comes home around curfew, and they engage them in a small conversation, give them a hug and a kiss, and say good night.

What they’ve also been doing during that brief minute or two exchange is sniff, sniff, sniff.

Parents believe that the easiest thing to do at the end of the night is to give their teen a look over, and then see if they can detect any smell of cigarettes, alcohol, or drugs.

But sometimes the nose won’t detect any odor, but instinct is telling parents that something isn’t right.

What next?

In the world of drug use and detection, the “break glass in case of emergency” tool is the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.

The Teensavers kit is the next level of detection.

Instinct can be a big factor for parents. Their teen may not be stumbling around or incoherent, but there’s enough there to suspect that something isn’t quite right.

Within three minutes you will have your answer.

1 panel tests screen for marijuana (THC)

3 panel tests screen for marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine

5 panel tests screen for the above three plus opiates and oxycodone

7 panel tests screen for the previous 5 plus benzodiazepines and ecstasy

12 panel tests screen for the previous 7 plus amphetamines, barbiturates, methadone, PCP, and tricyclic antidepressants.

While some communities are seeing a reduction in the number of heroin related deaths, others are seeing an increase.

The state of Maryland has a disturbing trend.

According to the Examiner, the number of heroin deaths rose 41% from year to year.

You can read more about the situation in the state by clicking HERE.

There is a great article in the Marion Star today by Nick Bechtel.

It is a very deep look at how heroin use can not only grip a drug user, but how it can put the whole family on edge.

We highly recommend that you take some time reading how opiate addiction and heroin use is infiltrating our suburbs, and how families are coping with it.

The lucky ones are the ones who may be enduring a several year period of addiction, incarceration, and residential treatment programs.

The unlucky ones have buried their kids.

The article can be found HERE.

It seems silly that vanity would be the main reason to stop a teen from trying drugs.

Stop Meth in its tracks with Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit. Detect the meth before your teen transforms like the people below.

But if that’s what it takes, fantastic!

Every once in a while, an anti-drug campaign will release a so-called “faces of meth” poster with some shocking transformations.

The Daily Mail found the latest campaign from rehabs.com.

It’s enough to scare a kid away from methamphetamine!

An interesting viewpoint from Mother Jones’ Gavin Aronsen.

Citing the recent “first of its kind” synthetic marijuana study that we told you about on this blog a few days ago, Aronsen makes the argument that these drugs wouldn’t exist if marijuana wasn’t banned in the first place.

Long before the abuse of synthetic drugs, is the abuse of other illicit and legal drugs. One test detects drug use in minutes.

But the truth is, people with a desire to reach a high have long sought out alternative methods to what has been available.

Synthetic marijuana users aren’t pushed to the fake stuff because an absence or illegality of weed.

Marijuana is everywhere.

Synthetic drugs like k2 spice, bath salts etc. exist because people want to go to that next level.

People would smoke low level marijuana if they just liked to get high, but marijuana connoisseurs grow, sell, and buy premium grade marijuana at dispensaries where medicinal marijuana can be legally sold.

I know someone who abuses spice, k2, and other synthetic marijuana products.

She has been a long time marijuana smoker. She has no problem gaining access to a small amount of marijuana.

But she chooses to use synthetics because they make her feel good.

She pays more for the synthetic high, and she doesn’t even take the legality of either substance in consideration when she wants to use.

In the end, it really isn’t important why people use synthetic drugs. The key is that synthetics can kill, and need to be removed from store shelves.

Various news outlets in television and radio have picked up the story about small private companies offering drug detecting dog services at home.

The best tool goes beyond k9 searches. Teensavers 12 panel home drug test is the most comprehensive test for families.

And while drug dogs are very effective at discovering drugs in a home, they can’t provide parents with the answer they really want to know. Which drugs are their child abusing?

Kids may buy an amount of marijuana, and only use a small amount of the stash each time.

But if they are buying other drugs, they typically buy and use them instantly.

With Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits, you know if your child has been using painkiller, ecstasy, cocaine, methamphetamine, or another illicit drug.

Sure, when pressed, your teen may admit to using marijuana, and will gladly cough up some of his bag.

But he’s not going to tell you that he’s been raiding the medicine cabinet, or that he has a big designer drug habit.

Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits can bring your results beyond the bark of a drug detecting dog.

We frequently explain that pill abusers turn to heroin because either their pill supply runs dry, or that they can no longer afford to buy their opiates in pill form.

Make sure your teen is clean with Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.

No community may be seeing a bigger explosion in heroin use than the Maryland beach community of Ocean City.

Citing a 550% increase in heroin cases from the past, investigators there recently conducted an investigation spanning several weeks.

Officers arrested numerous drug users who were buying and selling heroin.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the community there is seeing an explosion in heroin use as measure are being put into place to prohibit prescription fraud.

Operation Smackdown saw undercover officers purchase numerous drugs, but heroin was the chief substance bought and sold.

Nobody just starts trying heroin one day. This is an addiction level built up by opiate use that manifests into heroin use.

It’s important communities continue to explain to people of all ages how critical prescription drug abuse is.

Addicts range in age from early teens to the baby boomers.

The best thing parents can do is either lock up or dispose of old medications to make sure that their children can’t experiment with any pills in the home.

The other thing parents can do is home drug test their children regularly.

Random home drug testing can help detect use that the nose cannot detect. Too many parents keep their nose trained for alcohol or marijuana, but you can’t sniff out a pill.
