The American Academy of Pediatrics is issuing guidance to parents that all teens be properly educated and screened regarding alcohol and drugs.   

Citing the CDC and the rising mortality statistics for drug related teen deaths, the AAP is cautioning parents.   The AAP’s committee on substance abuse writes that although it is common for adolescents and young adults to try mood-altering chemicals, including nicotine, it is important that this experimentation not be condoned, facilitated, or trivialized by adults including parents, teachers, and health care providers. Use of alcohol and other drugs remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality for young people in the United States.

The key research cited in the paper would dispell a lot of myths that parents have about kids who try drugs.   The policy statement continues: Even the first use of alcohol or another drug can result in tragic consequences such as unintentional injury or death. All substance use involves health risks that can occur long before there is drug addiction, and teenagers seem to be particularly susceptible to health risk–taking behaviors and injuries related to alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use.

The AAP recommends that parents consult pediatricians, and support drug screening.

Your family doctor is the first line of defense.    But screening can be done more comprehensively by parents in the home.   Utilizing home drug tests can help detect substance use in between the visits to the doctor.   Afterall, drugs typically stay in the system for up to 72 hours.

The Teensavers team salutes the Drug Enforcement Administration today, following yesterday’s emergency move to restrict the leading chemicals to create Spice, K2, and other synthetic marijuana clones. “This was serious stuff. Some children were falling very ill using this synthetic marijuana,” says Teensavers Home Drug Test creator Steve Stahovich. The DEA ruling was released in Tuesday’s Federal Register. The order to place the five synthetic cannabinoids into the controlled substances act were necessary to avoid imminent hazard to the public safety. The entry went on to say, “as a result of this order, the full effect of the CSA and its implementing regulations including criminal, civil and administrative penalties, sanctions and regulatory controls of Schedule I substances will be imposed on the manufacture, distribution, possession, importation, and exportation of these synthetic cannabinoids.
Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds in marijuana plnt that are structurally related. THC is the primary psychoactive constituent of marijuana. Synthetic cannabinoids are a large family of chemically unrelated structures functionally (biologically) similar to THC, the active principle in marijuana.


“Marijuana remains a big problem today for kids. Everyone thinks it’s the safe drug, since it’s approved for medicinal purposes, and it was nearly legalized in the state of California last November, ” says Stahovich. Stahovich, who has years of treatment in his background before moving into the diagnostics side, says that kids have a nonchalant attitude about marijuana. “Kids think marijuana is harmless. What they don’t see is that marijuana can be a gateway drug to other substances. Teens don’t just try cocaine and heroin out of the blue. They’ve usually been a frequent marijuana user before stepping up to the heavier substances.”
Stahovich says the signs of drug use are not always evident, and he that’s why he created a home drug test for families. “I want families to have the solution in their hands. They can be assured that not only will the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit detect the drug use, the counselors and follow up action provided with the kit, will help find the right treatment for the entire family. It is the total solution for the family.”

Charlie Sheen stands by his work ethic as an actor.    He says he doesn’t miss a casting call, and he’s always on time.    CBS however isn’t having him back, and has halted production of the hit comedy Two and a Half Men.    Sheen’s apparent rant and name calling incident of show creator Chuck Lorre was the final straw.

Teensavers says it will do it’s part to help CBS get the red light running again.   We have a home drug test that Charlie can take every day to prove that he is drug free.  Sheen recently told the great website Radaronline.com that he’d allow them to film him taking a drug test.   Charlie we have a 12-panel right here that tests for Cocaine, Heroin, PCP, Marijuana, Methamphetamines, Amphetamines, Baribiturates, Benzodiazapines, Oxycodone, Methodone, Ecstasy, and TCAs.      We’ll even waive the $40 price tag.     We love good humor at Teensavers, and if Charlie wants to vow to stay clean, we will help provide the tests so he can prove it!
