This is a partnered post with First Check Family to share these easy to use, at home drug test kits.
Drug use with kids and adults these days are a real problem. Not that it’s never NOT been a problem, more and more people are not just battling addiction to street drugs like Heroin or Cocaine. The big drug epidemic these days is with prescription drugs. Having had two important family members die of drug overdoses, it’s becoming more common for many American families.
One of the best ways to tackle the problems that lead to long term drug use includes serious education. With education many times comes testing. With experimentation and peer pressure many kids run into ways to ruin their lives. While it may be easy to have a good talking about drugs and the downfall to them, and think finally its done. It’s not easy to make sure they are safe all the time.

Many teens battle drug use peer pressure and college students are susceptible just as much if not more. For parents with kids going or returning to college, drop in, visit and make sure your kids are being smart about not using drugs.
